Sam Roberts'@nytimes column features #ElizabethGurleyFlynn by Lara Vapnek! #WomensHistoryMonth @WestviewPress

“This biography is a timely reminder, especially for students, of a radical organizer who fought for feminism, socialism, free love, birth control and women’s suffrage as a leader of the Industrial Workers of the World, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Communist Party USA.”—Sam Roberts, The New York Times 
New books examine the start of Mr. de Blasio’s tenure, case studies in participatory planning, and an early-20th-century fighter for socialist causes.

Annie Lennox and Madonna have different paths. BOTH of these remarkable, self-empowered ladies' paths are valid. And we can honor and respect the choices each of the these women have made for themselves....

A sneak peak from the upcoming @BarneyFrank memoir! #Frank @fsgbooks @washingtonpost    

"In his new memoir, FRANK, forthcoming later this month, the retired congressman from Massachusetts explains how, as a 14-year-old boy in 1954, he had decided to keep his sexual orientation secret, realizing that homosexuality and his burgeoning interest in public service 'would not mix well.' A few years later, during a year away from his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, he read a novel that reaffirmed that conviction in very stark terms [Alan Drury's 'Advise and Consent']."
During a year off from Harvard, he read Allen Drury's "Advise and Consent"

@Refinery29 found the oddest shoes in #SHOES by #RebeccaShawcross!@BloomsburyAcad

"SHOES: An Illustrated History, provides a stunning visual timeline of prehistoric to contemporary styles — some so bizarre you'll rethink your whole idea of what's 'ugly'....  While we admit that most of these styles wouldn’t stand a chance against Manhattan’s sludgy sidewalks, their unique flair and rich history are enough to at least momentarily rid our minds of the winter chills."--Stephanie Sporn, Refinery29  
It’s time to get dressed in the morning, and in a completely unexpected twist, you have no choice but to wear snow boots for what feels like the 100th consecutive day. But, as we grow increasingly bitter over February’s frostbite, let's not forget that plenty of other fascinating footwear

@KirkusReviews gave #TheManhattanProject a starred review. Judge for yourself soon! #onsaleApril1 @DavidKishik @stanfordpress

“A beguiling work of literary and social criticism that begins with a subverting counterfactual and moves into a deeply searching inquiry into the nature of an iconic island…. fans of Arendt, Howe and Kazin will find Kishik’s invention, and his playful seriousness in maintaining it, both a pleasure and a provocation.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

@BarneyFrank featured in the current issue of @washingtonian! @fsgbooks

Washingtonian: A criticism of lefty activism in general runs through the book. At times it reads like a psychological diagnosis, that liberals too often want to do what makes them feel good.

Frank: What I was saying is if you are feeling too good about it entirely, that’s probably a sign you’re not engaging the enemy enough.
What three decades as Washington's most powerful gay man taught Barney Frank about our city.

SHOES by #RebeccaShawcross unveils mystery, history of footwear @mcclatchydc @TishWells1 @BloomsburyAcad#BloomsburyVisualArts 

"Shawcross knows her stuff. She uses historical documents, paintings, photographs and advertising to show the ongoing development of footwear for both sexes."--Tish Wells, McClatchy Newspapers
"Shoes: An Illustrated History" by Rebecca Shawcross shows the human fascination with footwear over millennia.

In her 2011 National Book Award acceptance speech for her prize-winning novel “Salvage the Bones,” author Jesmyn Ward said that after her brother Josh was killed by a drunk driver in 2000, she realized not only that she had to become a writer, but that she had to write about “the experiences of the poor, the black, and rural people of the South so that the culture that had marginalized us for so long would see that our stories were as universal, ...
