This Just In...

The opening of Sensuality, desire . . . and other warm places: The artistic journey of Rose Henry was a huge success last night! If you didn't get a chance to stop in Rose's paintings will be on display at the store until the end of the month, so there's still time for you to check them out.

In other news, we just got a ton of new stuff in! In no particular order, we are now the proud stockers of Sticker Nation: The Big Book of Subversive Stickers (which may be by new favorite!); Confessions of A Former Dittohead, which started as Jim Derych's diary on the popular website Daily Kos; and Homegrown: Conversations on Race and Culture, the latest by bell hooks.

We also got in two of the latest books in the Feminist Press's Femme Fatales series: Women's Barracks by Torreska Torres and The G-String Murders by Gypsy Rose Lee. Women's Barracks, an account of life among female Free French soldiers in a London barracks during World War II, was originally published in 1950 and inspired a whole new genre: lesbian pulp! A mystery set in the underworld of burlesque theater, The G-String Murders was penned in 1941 by the legendary queen of the stripteasers.

For those of you who can't wait for Pagan Kennedy's signing on June 24 to pick up a copy of her latest, Confessions of A Memory Eater is now in stock. If it's not on display, just ask for it!
