Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
Three entertaining and interesting books came into my house last week:
Portrait of a Woman in White by Susan Winkler, published by She Writes Press. When Nazis invade Paris in 1940, lovers are torn apart and a Matisse portrait goes missing. Put this enthralling story of love, war, and art on your Must Read list!
The Court that Tamed the West: From the Gold Rush to the Tech Boom by Richard Cahan, Pia Hinckle, and Jessica Royer Ocken, published by Heyday Books. This is the history of the American West seen through the lens of the US District Court for the Northern District of California. It is legal history written for a general audience -- looks great!
By the Book: Writers on Literature and the Literary Life from the New York Times Book Review, Edited and with an Introduction by Pamela Paul, Foreword by Scott Turow. The title says it all. Can. Not. Wait.
