Mini Update Sticky Post: March 1,2021

Short stories? Deesha Philyaw’s The Secret Lives of Church Ladies. In comics? Michael Nicholl Yahgulanaas’ Carpe Fin: A Haida Manga. Dipping into: Claudia Rankine’s Just Us. And about to start Navajo Tsi’naajinii author Danielle Geller’s Dog Flowers. MustReadEverything authors? Thomas King’s new mystery, Obsidian. New-to-me? Andrea Stuart’s Sugar in the Blood: A Family’s Story of Slavery and Empire.

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my bookbag, notebook, stacks and reading log.

Later this month, a new chronological short story project: Alistair MacLeod’s short fiction: schedule here, sixteen months, usually one story a month.

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
