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.
Two books came into my house last week and both look very interesting:
Listen by Francesca G. Varela, published by Homebound Publications. This YA novel is a coming of age story with an environmental theme, centered around the romance between to budding musicians.
This talented young author -- only 23 herself -- is getting a lot of buzz for Listen, her second novel, which has already been written up in The Oregonian and several other publications.
Grandma Says: Wake Up, World! by Taowhywee, Agnes Baker Pilgrim, published by Blackstone Publishing. This is a collection of the "wisdom, wit, advice, and stories of 'Grandma Aggie'" the oldest living member of the Takelma Tribe.
Hearing "Grandma Aggie" read the book in her own voice would be the way to go! But it is available in paperback, and also in a Kindle edition.
