Mailbox Monday: Memoir, History, and Historical Fiction

What books came into your house last week? Three interesting volumes came my way:

Stet: An Editor's Life by Diana Athill. This memoir of her life in publishing by legendary editor Diana Athill (alive at 100) is my book club book for November.

A Deadly Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm by John Dodge. This is a new, comprehensive history of Oregon's most famous storm. OSU Press launched a Facebook group, here, for people to share stories and photos from the storm.

The Book of Dirt by Bram Presser. This is Presser’s first novel, inspired by his own family’s history of surviving the Holocaust.

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.
