Mailbox Labor Day!
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.
An interesting batch of books came into my house this week:
Never Look Down by Warren Easley. This is the latest in Easley's Cal Claxton mystery series featuring an ex-L.A. prosecutor now with a private law practice in Oregon. Here, Cal steps in to protect a 16-year-old street kid after she witnesses a murder.
The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath by Kimberly Knutsen. A funny literary novel of academic life, a rocky marriage, and the bleak Midwest. My favorite!
Marie Equi: Radical Politics and Outlaw Passions by Michael Helquist, published by OSU Press. The first full-length biography of Equi, who was a doctor, progressive activist, and open lesbian.
BOOK LAUNCH in Portland on Monday, September 14 at 7:00 pm at the Oregon Historical Society.
