From time to time this blog shows damaged manuscripts. One may be inclined to think that books are better off in pristine condition. However, Karin Scheper, conservator at the University Library Le...

A rave review of @SoniaMManzano's#BecomingMaria in the @NYTimesBooks this Sunday!!@Scholastic @vvchambers 

"Manzano is such a familiar figure in our pop culture that it would be almost easy to miss that she is an ink-slinging storyteller with serious smarts and unquestionable literary gifts. Her words are bright on the page. BECOMING MARIA is a powerful book."--Veronica Chambers, The New York Times Book Review 
Look for your life: Two Latina writers explore the experience of finding their own way among multiple cultures.

@BoingBoing is MAD about the new ‪#‎SPYVSSPY‬ book!!@timeincbooks @MADMagazine @Frauenfelder
"With all the new material here, this book is a must for anyone who loves SPY VS SPY."--Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing
See sample pages from this book at Wink. As a kid, my favorite thing about MAD was “Spy vs Spy.” (I didn’t know that “vs” stood for “versus” so I pronounced the comic “spyvisspy.”) The strips were ...

Murals and signs weren't intended to last forever but we get very, very attached to them anyhow.

What a clever device the book is. It is compact and light, yet contains hundreds of pages that hold an incredible amount of information. Moving forward or backward in the text is as easy as flippin...

@Judy_Foreman weighs in on opioids, pain, & suicide. #ANationinPain @OUPAcademic#suicideprevention

"The dismal situation with chronic pain — and the potential link with suicide — is unlikely to improve until the federal government takes the pain epidemic seriously. While the government spends $2,562 on research for every person with HIV/AIDS, it spends only $4 for every person with pain. Clearly, chronic pain needs more attention and more research dollars. After all, it is the main reason Americans go on disability. And it appears to be driving growing numbers of Americans to kill themselves."
It's conceivable, then, that roughly half of these suicides are driven by pain. Not proven fact, but plausible hypothesis. This would suggest that perhaps be 20,000 Americans a year with chronic pain kill themselves, which would be more than the government's tally of 16,235 deaths from prescription opioids every year.

@KaliGrossPhD speaks out about the need to advocate for Black girls in America.@statesman @OUPAcademic 

"President Obama must use the resources of the federal government to create and implement effective policies that will empower and protect black girls. Specifically, lawmakers should start a national campaign to review and revise school practices that funnel students into the justice system, equalize federally funded initiatives so that they support at-risk girls and boys, and cultivate programs that identify early signs of sexual abuse so that young victims are supported rather than incarcerated."
Niya Kenny has set a powerful example for the nation.
