- Grammar Girl is here to help you help your patrons get work! She wrote up a few very handy hints for résumé building here on the blog. Oh, and there's a signed books giveaway, too!
"Karen Nieto is a remarkable character, and Mexican playwright/poet Sabina Berman's rendering of her unusual voice and personality in ME, WHO DOVE INTO THE HEART OF THE WORLD is equally remarkable. [...]
"A beautifully written, emotionally affecting debut featuring a protagonist whose 'different abilities' include surprising and charming the reader."
- And finally, A LADY CYCLIST'S GUIDE TO KASHGAR may have come out back in May, but it's still bicycle season, so we're still thinking about it!
