FRIENDS TO KEEP IN ART AND LIFE By Nicole Tersigni

From the author of the bestselling masterpiece Men to Avoid in Art and Life comes Friends to Keep in Art and Life, a hilarious and relatable celebration of female friendships and all their bizarre-but-special moments. Pairing classical paintings with sassy captions, Tersigni honors all sorts of sacred female friendships and the miscellaneous nonsense that brings women closer together. Focusing on five major friend types (the Work Friend, the Nurturing Friend, the Hide a Body for You Friend, the Up for Anything Friend, and the Super Honest Friend), Tersigni’s meme-style humor perfectly captures all of the weird, intimate, cherished, and often laugh-out-loud moments that define female friendship. NICOLE TERSIGNI is a comedic writer experienced in improv comedy and women’s advocacy. She lives in metro Detroit with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.

PRAISE FOR HELLER’S PRIDE AND PREJUDICE:

“ And finally, for the letter lover with a touch of class, you must get the forthcoming edition of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice curated by Barbara Heller. . . . More than a gimmick, it’s a dramatic way to experience the central role that correspondence plays in the novel.” —The Washington Post

“ Even beyond the minute care taken in the handwriting, the letters in Heller’s edition of Pride and Prejudice are painstakingly detailed, from the style of folding . . . to the postal markings and wax imprints indicating price, mileage, date, etc. . . . These letters, with the various character traits that their appearances indicate, can bring 21stcentury readers closer to Austen’s world.” —Smithsonian magazine

“ The concept has been so well executed that the inclusion of the ‘real’ letters brings a completely unexpected quality to the novel—an element of surprise and delight that emphasizes the importance of letter-writing in the 18th century and cleverly echoes Jane Austen’s own mastery of the art of correspondence.” —Regency magazine

PERSUASION The Complete Novel, Featuring the Characters’ Letters and Papers, Written and Folded by Hand By Jane Austen • Curated by Barbara Heller

Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne Elliot remains one of literature’s most unforgettable confessions. It is the jewel at the heart of Persuasion, Jane Austen’s captivating story of second chances and enduring love. Throughout the story, letters and other paper ephemera reveal the characters’ motivations and shape their destinies. The Navy List that helps Anne chart Wentworth’s life from afar; the concert bill from a pivotal evening in Bath; a page from the Baronetage, Sir Walter Elliot’s favorite book— all these and more are brought to life in this deluxe edition. As you read the novel, you will find pockets throughout containing replicas of fifteen items from the story, recreated with exquisite calligraphy and painstaking attention to historical detail. For anyone who loves Jane Austen or still cherishes the joy of letter writing, this book deepens the experience of a favorite story in an entirely new way.

JANE AUSTEN (author) (1775–1817) was a British writer. Persuasion was her last completed novel, published six months after her death. BARBARA HELLER (curator) is a set decorator for film and television and a writer and director of award-winning short films. Her previous books include special editions of Pride and Prejudice and Little Women. She lives in New York City.

RAISING THE BAR A Bottle-by-Bottle Guide to Mixing Masterful Cocktails at Home • By Brett Adams and Jacob Grier Illustrated by Woody Harrington

There’s a basic cocktail formula for building a drink that is anything but ordinary: Spirit + Sugar + Acidity/Bitterness = Tasty Cocktail Rather than relying on esoteric bottles of liquor, complicated syrups, and obscure sodas, Raising the Bar takes readers through the home bar bottle by bottle, ensuring that every ingredient is versatile enough to be used to the last drop. Each chapter thoughtfully introduces a new bottle and explains how it opens new possibilities for cocktails, building on the one before, so readers never encounter recipes calling for unfamiliar spirits or ingredients. With handsome graphics and a smart focus on what’s already in stock, it’s what home mixologists can turn to when they want creative and delightful drinks without a bar cart full of single-use bottles.

BRETT ADAMS is a bartender with nearly two decades of experience in restaurants and more than a decade spent behind the bar. He lives in Honolulu, Hawaii. JACOB GRIER is the author of Cocktails on Tap, named one of the fifteen best cocktail books for home bartenders by Esquire. His writing has been featured by Slate, the Atlantic, and many other publications. He lives in Portland, Oregon. WOODY HARRINGTON is an illustrator and art director working in sunny Philadelphia.

20 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR BECOMING A BETTER ADVOCATE

ANSWERS TO 20 UNCOMFORTABLE BUT CRITICAL QUESTIONS, SUCH AS:

Should I see color? I’m a good person—how can I be racist? What if I say something wrong? What kind of apology makes a difference?

COURAGEOUS DISCOMFORT How to Have Important, Brave, Life-Changing Conversations about Race and Racism By Shanterra McBride and Rosalind Wiseman

Many people struggle to have honest conversations about race, even those who identify as anti-racist allies. For anyone who wants to have more productive discussions, Courageous Discomfort is an empowering handbook that teaches you how to do just that. In these pages, authors (and best friends) Shanterra McBride, who is Black, and Rosalind Wiseman, who is white, discuss their friendship and tap into their decades of anti-racism work to answer the 20 questions about race they get asked most often. Each chapter invites you into the conversation without judgment and inspires thoughtful reflection and discussion. While there is no perfect solution or script for every maybe racist, sort-of racist, or blatantly racist situation, learning how to have uncomfortable but necessary conversations helps us all build the relationships we desire, including the ones with ourselves.

SHANTERRA MCBRIDE is a Texas-based author, preacher, speaker, and teacher. She is the founder of Marvelous University, a social enterprise that offers life coaching, success planning, and leadership development for girls and young women.

AN ILLUSTRATED LOVE LETTER TO NYC!

I LOVE(ISH) NEW YORK CITY Tales of City Life • By Ali Solomon

New Yorker and McSweeney’s contributor Ali Solomon brings an absurdist’s eye and a satirist’s pen to this love letter to the greatest (or great-ish?) city in the world. I Love(ish) New York City is for anyone who has ever loved, left, or dreamed of living in New York City. ALI SOLOMON is a writer, cartoonist, and art teacher.

SOME KEY INSIGHTS FROM MEDITATING:

Donuts are delicious. Passwords that auto-populate defeat the purpose of passwords. You can learn a lot of valuable life skills by joining a pyramid scheme. The best part about being single is the 100 percent certainty I’m not in a dead-end relationship. Everything is different. Everything is the same. People are rarely the monsters we see in our minds. Someone else’s lack of empathy is not a defense for yours. Donuts are delicious.

Through this memoir-esque exploration of selfhood, Zach unveils the pros and cons of retiring a Bible-Beltdwelling, meat-eating, God-fearing identity in exchange for a new, metropolitan lease on life—one of vegetarianism, atheism, queerness, and humor. Through the Hells of religious guilt, dead-end jobs, and hookups gone horribly wrong, this book is a candid and hysterical snippet of one person’s journey toward making peace with the past and seeking hope in the future, perfect for the bookworm and humor fan in your life. ZACH ZIMMERMAN is a Brooklyn-based comedian and writer named a TimeOut New York Comic to Watch whose work has been published in the New Yorker, McSweeney’s, the Washington Post, the Independent, and more.

I CAN’T WAIT TO CALL YOU MY WIFE African American Letters of Love and Family in the Civil War Era • By Rita Roberts

Thousands of African Americans spent the Civil War trying to hold their families together. This moving book illuminates that struggle through the letters they exchanged. Despite harsh laws against literacy and brutal practices that broke apart Black families, people found ways to write to each other against all odds. Readers will meet parents who are losing hope of ever seeing their children again, and a husband who walks fifteen miles to visit his wife, enslaved on a different plantation. The collection includes courtship letters exchanged between the children of noted abolitionists, and letters sent home by the young women who traveled south to teach literacy to escaped slaves. Roberts’ expert curation allows readers to see the wider historical context. The transcriptions are accompanied by reproductions of selected original letters and photographs of the letter writers.

“ Try envisioning design as water. Water is indispensable to human life, connecting us to our environments in visible and invisible ways. It can cause disasters like tsunamis . . . but it can also materialize as a rainbow, radiant in the light of the sun. Just as water makes every phenomenon possible, design is an essential component of every human endeavor.” —from Just Enough Design

JUST ENOUGH DESIGN Reflections on the Japanese Philosophy of Hodo-hodo By Taku Satoh • Edited and translated by Linda Hoaglund

The Japanese phrase hodo-hodo originates in ancient times. When contemporary designer Taku Satoh applies it to his work, it means “just enough.” Hodo-hodo design deliberately holds back, leaving room for individuals to engage with objects according to their unique sensibilities. In the midst of a consumerist age, Satoh has built an illustrious design career around this philosophy, creating iconic work in fashion, food, and architecture. His ideas speak not just to professional designers, but to anyone who wishes to move more thoughtfully through the world. Within this slim but powerful volume, Satoh explains his philosophy through tangible examples—from the aesthetic of a timeworn ramen shop to a rooftop playground inspired by onomatopaeia. Urging readers to appreciate everyday objects and spaces and to question the lure of convenience, he delivers a message rooted in the past yet perfectly suited to our times.

CARDI B

BLACK ICONS IN HERSTORY 50 Remarkable Women Illustrated by Monica Ahanonu Written by Darian Symoné Harvin

Black Icons in Herstory features colorfully illustrated portraits and inspiring biographies of 50 of the most admired women in the fields of music, film, literature, politics, human rights, and more. This second book in our Icons series focuses exclusively on extraordinary Black women and celebrates their remarkable achievements. From Rosa Parks to Angela Davis; from Nina Simone to Janet Jackson and from Michelle Obama to Amanda Gorman; the people on this curated list of role models are significant and inspiring.

Cardi B bootstrapped her rise to the top. Before she took her rightful place as a rap star, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar was a “regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx,” as she puts it. The child of a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother. A dissatisfied downtown grocery cashier and college student studying history. A New York City stripper. A viral Instagram mastermind, known for her comedic clips and generous street smarts advice. An ex-stripper at the age of 23 with hundreds of thousands of followers. A breakout star on the 6th season of VH1’s reality show Love & Hip Hop. And eventually, a voice fusing her Latin America and AfroCaribbean heritage with pop to make global hits. The only thing that’s changed about Cardi B is the amount of zero’s in her bank account. She’s just as salacious as the day she started. Her flow remains rambunctious and aggressive, like the city she hails from. Through the wins and love lessons, she candidly talks about both with no-hold-bars strength and humor.

In 2017, after Cardi B signed to Atlanta Records with two mixtapes under her belt, it only took one bombastic single, her debut, “Bodak Yellow,” to put her at the top of the U.S. Billboard 100 charts. It made her the first female rapper to claim the top spot with a solo single since 1998, when Lauryn Hill released “Doo Wop (That Thing).” In 2018, the same year her debut album Invasion of Privacy was released, Cardi B had her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus with rapper Offset of the Migos rap group. She has the most simultaneous singles on the Billboard U.S. Hot 100 for any female artist. Cardi B once planned to become a history teacher. She’s a self-confessed American politics fanatic, often chiming in on current events, sharing her perspectives on colorism, social justice, women’s rights, and COVID-19. She has done all of this while becoming a fashion and beauty icon. She popped out of a vintage Mugler oyster shell dress like a pearl at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Then, she won Best Rap Album of the year.

MONICA AHANONU is an illustrator who lives and works in Los Angeles. Her signature style has been sought after by clients such as Adidas, Adobe, Vanity Fair, Netflix, the New York Times, and more.

AMANDA GORMAN

DARIAN SYMONÉ HARVIN is a Los Angeles-based writer who covers beauty, pop culture and politics. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, BuzzFeed News, and more.

Amanda Gorman deeply understands her duty in this lifetime. She is a poet and activist called to change hearts and perspectives. As a messenger, she is asking us all to look. Look, in the midst of uncertainty, for hope in what still remains. She asks that we not lose sight of who we are. Gorman used herself as an example when she delivered her original poem, “The Hill We Climb,” at President Joe Biden’s inauguration: “We, the successors of a country and a time where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one.” Gorman was born in Los Angeles, where she became the first inaugural Youth Poet Laureate of the city. She then became the first person to be named National Youth Poet Laureate during her time studying sociology at Harvard.

happen. During her last year of college, Gorman listened to Maya Angelou’s inauguration poem, “On the Pulse of Morning,” at the start of almost every day. When Gorman stepped off the podium from reciting her own poem at the 2021 inauguration, she knew that she’d be back. She’s gone on record multiple times to say she’s running for president in 2036. Four years ago, she insisted to publishing houses that she was going to be the inaugural poet laureate and that it was important for the book to be out. Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem is finally out, and it’s a best seller. Amanda Gorman aims to show up as a poet and activist in the spaces she occupies, from red carpets to magazine covers to stages. Her poems are messages on how she interprets life, justice, and freedom from a Black woman’s lens. She knows her own story is important enough to tell, and she understands how it may break others free. So, she tells it.

Gorman has the ability to envision her destiny. She clearly and brightly tells you her future. Then we all watch it

T

H E CO LO M B I A N N A TI O N A L TE A M in 1990 was a Pablo Escobar–funded fever dream, swirling dirty money, ruthless cartel warfare, and huge quantities of cocaine into the already labyrinthine world of Latin American football. After a referee in the top Colombian league was murdered for a controversial decision in a league game in November of 1989, there had been calls to bar the country from the World Cup, but FIFA put only the most ginger of feet down, forcing the Colombians to suspend the rest of their league season. So there they were in Italy that summer, not the tournament’s main event, but easily its most intriguing. They showed up to their first match in Bologna with statement-piece hair, an air of danger, and a nonchalance that boggled the mind when you considered the fact that this was their first time qualifying for the World Cup since 1962 and, of course, that the team was controlled by capricious, vengeful drug lords. The Colombian centerpiece, both from an aesthetic and a logistical perspective, was undoubtedly captain Carlos Valderrama. Sporting a gravity-defying, humidityspurning, principles of aerodynamics–rejecting blond afro, a dark Burt Reynolds mustache, and an ever-growing collection of beaded jewelry dangling from his neck and wrists, Valderrama looked, more than anything, like an SNL parody of a South American footballer. Already 29 at his debut World Cup, his nickname was, ironically enough, el Pibe (the Kid). The Colombians played a style called toque toque. Similar in both name and method to the tiki-taka of Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona, the players traveled up and down the pitch in complex, kaleidoscopic triangles, dominating possession and mesmerizing opponents with short, perpetual motion– passing patterns. But whereas tiki-taka is a modernist version, a kind of warp speed, mechanistic take on the idea, the Colombian toque is a swinging, rhythmic, remarkably unharried affair. Football as Ultimate Frisbee. When you set it to samba music, they pass on the downbeat. Valderrama functioned as the team’s metronome. Once described by journalist Tim Vickery as “a player who always had the ball, and never had the ball,” he lacked F U L L N A M E:

pace but apparently had no need for it, jogging languidly around the pitch with masterful touch and perfect cadence, serenely picking up teammates’ passes and redirecting them with casual, metrical precision. Valderrama’s crowning achievement that tournament came in Colombia’s final group-stage fixture. Despite 88 minutes of ball domination against an already knockout stage–qualified West Germany, Colombia found themselves down 1–0 to a strike from German winger Pierre Littbarski. The Colombians needed at least a draw to go through. As the game ticks into stoppage time, they regain possession. Dribbling up the center of the pitch, Luis Fajardo hands the ball off to Valderrama, who is standing still, just waiting for it at the edge of the center circle. He spins around not one but two German players, leaving them on the ground beside him, zips the ball to Freddy Rincón, who one-touches it to Fajardo, who in turn pinballs it straight back to Valderrama. Ambling into space, Valderrama spots Rincón sprinting forward on the right and sends him a gorgeous through pass that rolls right to his feet at the 18-yard line. Rincón gently knocks it straight through the legs of the West German keeper, and Colombia is into the round of 16. It is disgustingly, wonderfully blasé. Such was the magic of el Pibe. Four days later against Cameroon, the other side of Colombia’s nonchalance is put on display when Roger Milla cherry picks a dillydallying Colombian keeper René Higuita—he of the flowing renaissance curls and the trademarked scorpion kick, an objectively ridiculous move, in which he would clear the ball by launching himself into a handstand to kick the ball away with his heels (you won’t regret YouTubing it)—and propels Cameroon past Colombia into the quarterfinals. Valderrama had subsequent triumphs—beating Argentina 5–0 in a 1993 World Cup qualifying game (a victory so famous in Colombia it is simply referred to as el 5–0), becoming a pioneering player in the newly formed MLS, and leading Colombia’s qualification into the next two World Cups—but in memory, he remains in Italia 90. Hair flying, bracelets jangling, exuding a preternatural, almost laughable calm in the center of a world of chaos.

pantry organization In recent years, gorgeous pantries have become all the rage, and while we love a giant pantry with storage bins and decanted foods, not everyone is able to achieve that (and maybe they don’t want to). A high-functioning pantry does not need to look a certain way. It needs to be laid out so that it’s easy for you and anyone you live with to find what they’re looking for, and easy to put things back. This applies whether your pantry is a large walk-in closet or a cabinet and drawers where you keep the food. If you want to go for the matching bins and glass jars, have at it! But it’s not a requirement.

Mix-and-Match Pasta

LOVE YOUR HOME AGAIN Organize Your Space and Uncover the Home of Your Dreams • By Ann Lightfoot and Kate Pawlowski

When we first move in to a new home, we have grand visions for our space. But time passes and drawers, closets, and cabinets fill until there’s no space to put things away. A few years later, we look around and find the home we dreamt of is nowhere to be seen. In Love Your Home Again, mother-daughter duo Ann Lightfoot and Kate Pawlowski teach us how to manage our homes in a modern, kind, and effective way. Through their signature systems of decluttering, organizing, and maintaining, Ann and Kate guide readers through the steps to resolve the issues behind the excess stuff and create the literal space to consider what they want from their home.

When you wind up with small amounts of various kinds of pasta, make a big batch of mixed pasta! Be sure to add them to your boiling water one by one, to account for various cooking times.

CHIPS PASTA

Pasta Keep all pasta together in the pantry, possibly in a bin, but certainly in a designated area on the shelf. Pasta is purchased frequently and often goes unused. Don’t let that happen. When it’s all together in a bin, or is in one place, you can see what you have and use it up. Grains When did the explosion of exotic grains happen? People now have five kinds of rice, in addition to amaranth, quinoa, oats, millet, bulgur, and buckwheat. Be ruthless when sorting grains. We all buy them full of hope for the adventure and then they just sit there when we microwave a bag of rice. No judgment about having the hope, of course . . . but get real when you’re organizing the millet.

GRAINS

snacks

Baking Keep your baking items together. Whether this is the boxes of brownie and cake mix or every flour known to man, they should all be in the same area. For some of you, these items will be decanted on a shelf, and for others they could be in a bin on the floor of the pantry. In the baking bin you can also put sugars and cocoa, dry yeast, baking soda, and baking powder, etc.—in other words, all the things you’re likely to pull out together when you get ready to use your stand mixer.

A GUIDE FOR SELF-INQUIRY AND EMPOWERMENT THROUGH LIFE’S TRANSITIONS.

EMOTIONS “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” —Unknown When emotions, such as fear and anxiety, are intensely felt, they can become trapped in the body. While we are not always aware of them, they manifest in our relationships, our work, and other areas of life. You don’t realize how heavy the emotions you carry actually are until you put them down. And that is the beautiful news—you can put them down. Energy healing has been used for thousands of years, but many people today are disconnected from it and are not aware that they can access these holistic practices. You can harness the power of energy healing and unlock the body’s natural ability to correct misalignments and imbalances that may lead to physical and emotional symptoms. Dr. Bradley Nelson teaches a process called “The Emotion Code,” which gives people the ability to learn how to clear negative

Featuring original illustrations and beloved quotes by Saint-Exupéry, this international sensation teaches us how to navigate the increasingly complex demands of adult life and rediscover what matters most—at any age.

After being pitched one too many jars of “high vibe” marinara sauce, wellness and travel journalist Annie Daly traveled through some of the world’s biggest cities and smallest villages to find out why their inhabitants are so much happier and healthier. Daly combines on-the-ground reporting and personal narrative to share global lessons, philosophies, and customs from Jamaica, Norway, Hawaii, Japan, India, and Brazil. This culturally immersive read invites you to view the world through a different lens and decide what being well means to you.

FROM THE CREATOR OF NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK THERE MUST BE MORE THAN THAT! AND NEW YORK TIMES BEST ILLUSTRATED CHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE YEAR THE BORING BOOK

I CAN EXPLAIN By Shinsuke Yoshitake

Nose picking? Nail biting? Wiping dirty hands on clothes? Instead of just deeming them “bad manners,” award-winning author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake encourages readers to consider the compelling reasons that may be behind these behaviors. For instance: Jumping on the bed is great practice for when the road becomes a trampoline! Not being able to sit still might actually be the chair’s fault! And what better way to train for the International Straw Chewing Contest than by chewing on straws? This laugh-out-loud picture book unpacks the reasons behind a variety of relatable behaviors. Clever and creative, it will inspire children and parents alike to expand their powers of reason and view their own habits in a new, humorous, and— most importantly—forgiving light. After all, there’s an explanation for everything!

LIKE By Annie Barrows • Illustrated by Leo Espinosa

By New York Times bestselling author Annie Barrows and Pura Belpré Honor award recipient Leo Espinosa, this funny yet thought-provoking picture book offers a sequence of outlandishly fun compare-and-contrasts that show how humans are much more like each other than we are different. ANNIE BARROWS has written scads of books for children, including the New York Times bestselling chapter book series Ivy + Bean, as well as the Iggy series, a young adult novel, some picture books, and a couple of books involving magic. If Annie could be like something else on earth, she would probably choose an excavator. Or a tiger. LEO ESPINOSA is a New York Times bestselling illustrator. He was awarded a prestigious Pura Belpré Honor for the picture book Islandborn, written by Junot Díaz, and his illustrations have been featured in numerous publications, including the New Yorker. In addition to his love of drawing, Leo enjoys pedaling up and down the mountains around Salt Lake City, Utah, where he lives; so you could say he’s both like a pencil and a bicycle.

With lively illustrations and text that invites readers to read (or sing!) aloud, this charming picture book is guaranteed to delight any cat lover. These cute cats will steal your heart—and your cookies for Santa!

HEART STRINGS BIND US TOGETHER IN THIS HEARTWARMING PICTURE BOOK! LOOK FOR THE RAINBOW-COLORED BINDING THREAD!

HEART STRING By Brooke Boynton-Hughes

This book is a poignant reminder that we’re all connected, whether we’re loved ones or strangers. Through backyards and neighborhoods, over mountains, and across oceans, an invisible yet undeniable heart string ties us all together so that we are never truly alone. Follow the thread of this reassuring story to see how, even in a world as vast as ours, there is always a bond that connects us to the ones we love—and to the world we share. From anxiety about the first day of school to missing a traveling parent or distant grandparent, any kid will find comfort in this story about how love can overcome both distance and hardship. Revealing the threads that bind us together as one global community, Heart String offers a timely celebration of love and connection during uncertain times.

BROOKE BOYNTON-HUGHES is an introvert who often finds going out into the world and meeting new people anxiety inducing. But she does it anyway because the world is full of beautiful and interesting people worthy of connection. She writes and illustrates children’s books in Fort Collins, Colorado, where she lives with her husband and children.

IF YOU WERE A CITY By Kyo Maclear • Illustrated by Francesca Sanna

Just like people, there are so many ways a city can be. And this lively picture book explores all of them. From quiet and dreamy to bright and buzzing, the magnificent diversity of our world is vividly celebrated by connecting the uniqueness of its cities with the people who live in them. Wild, gritty, bookish, or sheltering— if you were a city, how would YOU be? KYO MACLEAR (kyō means “capital city” in Japanese) was born in London and spent her childhood summers in Tokyo. She now lives with her family in Toronto (originating from the Mohawk word Tkaranto) where she writes books for all ages and dreams of big, beautiful cities created by—and for—everybody. FRANCESCA SANNA grew up in Cagliari, a small, sunny city by the sea on the island of Sardinia, and currently lives in Zurich, a bigger, cloudy city by the mountains. Before becoming an illustrator, she received her bachelor’s degree in architecture. She learned that cities are made by people and that people are made by the cities they live in, which is how she came to love to draw, visit, and live in cities.

ONLY THE BEST The Exceptional Life and Fashion of Ann Lowe By Kate Messner and Margaret E. Powell Illustrated by Erin K. Robinson

A careful snip, a delicate fold. Fabric the color of new petals, skirts that flare like upside-down blossoms—in Ann’s hands, a garden bursts into bloom! There is no “good enough.” For Ann, only the best will do. Award-winning author Kate Messner, costume historian Margaret E. Powell, and fashion designer and illustrator Erin K. Robinson tell the powerful story of the groundbreaking Ann Lowe, who grew up in a small Alabama dress shop and became the first nationally known African American fashion designer. Sought after by millionaires and movie stars, her designs walked the red carpet and graced the wedding of Senator John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier. At a time when the world around her thought African Americans deserved no more than second-class treatment, Ann expects no less of herself, and no less for herself, than the best.

KATE MESSNER is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 books for young readers. She lives on Lake Champlain with her family. MARGARET E. POWELL was a decorative arts historian and a curatorial assistant at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art. She was organizing a major exhibition about Ann Lowe’s life and fashion before she passed away in 2019. ERIN K. ROBINSON is an Emmy Award–nominated artist and a fashion designer.

PRAISE FOR EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A TREEHOUSE:

An NPR Best Book of the Year

“One magical, impossible treehouse after another.” —The Wall Street Journal

THE SNAIL By Emily Hughes

Isamu Noguchi is one of the most important sculptors of all time. This is his story. Noguchi was a Japanese American artist who gave the world light. But the world was not so giving in return. Growing up mixed-race, born in the United States and raised in Japan, Noguchi found himself perceived as an outsider who did not belong in either country. Unable to identify fully as either Japanese or American, he turned to his art to shape, hold, and create light—to conquer the darkness without. Poetic and searing, heart-wrenching and exquisite, Emily Hughes’s paean to creativity explores emotions ravaged by a history of Japanese incarceration, the effects of personal isolation, and the power of art to heal those wounds. EMILY HUGHES is the author-illustrator of Wild and many other books for kids, including the award-winning Charlie & Mouse series and Everything You Need for a Treehouse. She was born in Hawaii and lives and works in the United Kingdom. Also available: Everything You Need for a Treehouse $17.99 HC 9781452142555

WOVEN OF THE WORLD By Katey Howes • Illustrated by Dinara Mirtalipova

As rhythmic as the swish of a loom, and as vibrant as a skein of brightly dyed wool, this lyrical picture book shares the history of weaving through the centuries and around the world, as imagined by a young weaver learning her craft. Her family’s weaving practice shows her that each of us is a tapestry: a unique, rich, and beautifully interwoven combination of traits and traditions, with a pattern that is still emerging. At once a celebration of a time-honored art and a meditation on the ways we are interconnected, this artfully woven narrative gathers various threads of weaving—as a technical skill, a cultural tradition, and a metaphor for how our lives are knit together— into a radiantly intertwined whole.

KATEY HOWES is an award-winning children’s author and poet. She divides her time between writing, crafting, and raising three ravenous readers on a small mountain in eastern Pennsylvania. DINARA MIRTALIPOVA is a self-taught illustrator and designer. Born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, she studied computer science, but her true passion was always patterns and illustration. She works and lives in Sagamore Hills, Ohio, with her family.

PRAISE FOR LOLO’S LIGHT:

“ Lolo’s Light is a tender, gentle exploration of grief and a testament to the light—family, friendship, community—that helps us through it.” —Elana K. Arnold, author of A Boy Called Bat, Michael L. Printz honoree, and National Book Award finalist

“ What a wonderful, truly awesome and amazing story this is. Millie, Sam, Ms. Fritz, Lolo, the Acostas—theirs is a story filled with grace, longing, and, above all, love. My heart will never be the same again.” LOLO’S LIGHT By Liz Garton Scanlon

Once in every kid’s life, sometime after their first memory but before they can drive a car, something happens that doesn’t happen to anyone else they know. It might be something good. It might be something bad. For Millie, it’s something really sad. Lolo, her neighbors’ infant daughter, dies inexplicably on the night Millie babysits. It’s not Millie’s fault. And there was nothing she could have done. But how does she go on? Readers who love The Thing About Jellyfish and Counting by 7s will find hope in this honest, poignant, and profound coming-of-age story about grief, redemption, and life as a kid experiencing both. Cathartic and important, this is an empathetic portrait of a girl at her most vulnerable—a mess of grief, love, and ultimately, acceptance—who must reckon with those most difficult of demons: death . . . and life.

—Kathi Appelt, author of The Underneath, National Book Award finalist, and Newbery honoree

“ Expertly woven with tenderness and grace, this is a book for anyone who needs reminding there is always light to be found in the darkness.” —Christina Soontornvat, Newbery Honor–winning author of A Wish in the Dark

MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN MEETS GRETA THUNBERG IN THIS HEARTFELT, EXCITING NOVEL ABOUT ONE GIRL’S GROWING AWARENESS OF HERSELF, THE WORLD, AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO.

“ Front Country is the book we need at the time we need it: a beautifully written story about finding meaning in the face of despair and friendship in the unlikeliest of places. Give this novel to every young reader worried about the future of our fragile planet. They’ll come away grateful, hopeful, and truly inspired.” —Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal–winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The One and Only Ivan

FRONT COUNTRY By Sara St. Antoine

When eighth grader Ginny Shepard learns that her favorite animal, the pika, may not survive the changing climate, suddenly, nothing matters: not tennis, not homework, and certainly not college prep. But her parents remain stuck in their ways. And when they send her to a camp where she can finally see pikas and other threatened creatures firsthand, she discovers she’s been sent there for all the wrong reasons. The only girl in a group with five challenging boys, Ginny struggles to find her place. But as her friendships with her fellow campers deepen, she starts to see other sides of them—and of herself. Set against the sweeping Montana alpine wilderness, this epic adventure is a testament to the tremendous heartbreak of realizing that the world isn’t okay at all—and how that knowledge, and what we choose to do with it, shapes us into who we are.

“ Front Country is one of those books that takes you on a journey—and it’s a journey we all need to be taking. Ginny begins with despair about the fate of a world that has let itself fall into a climactic crisis, and this is only heightened when her family’s response is to send her on a summer camping trip that is designed, she thinks, to deflect her from that despair. But in the crucible of the Montana mountains and the painful emotional world of five hurt boys, she is energized into hope and purpose. This is a story about the ache and promise of our world, and it begs us to pay attention to both.” —Gary D. Schmidt, Newbery Honoree, Printz Honoree, and National Book Award Finalist for Okay for Now

COLLECTIVELY, THESE PHOTOS ARE THE LENS THROUGH WHICH WE REMEMBER THE INCARCERATION.

CHILDREN’S

DOROTHEA LANGE was a photographer best known for her haunting Depression-era images. Lange was hired by the federal government to record the conditions of the camps. Deeply critical of the policy, she wanted her photos to shed light on the harsh reality of incarceration. TOYO MIYATAKE was a Japanese-born, Los Angeles–based photographer who lent his artistic eye to portraying events in the Japanese American community. Imprisoned at Manzanar, he devised a way to smuggle in photographic equipment, determined to show what was really going on inside the barbed-wire confines of the camp. ANSEL ADAMS was an acclaimed landscape photographer and environmentalist. Hired by the director of Manzanar, Adams hoped his carefully curated pictures would demonstrate to the rest of the United States the resilience of those in the camps. 96

THREE PHOTOGRAPHERS. THREE PERSPECTIVES. AND THROUGH THE LENSES OF THEIR CAMERAS, THREE DIFFERENT VIEWS OF ONE BITTER CHAPTER IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

SEEN AND UNSEEN What Dorothea Lange, Toyo Miyatake, and Ansel Adams’s Photographs Reveal About the Japanese American Incarceration By Elizabeth Partridge • Illustrated by Lauren Tamaki

Three months after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the incarceration of all Japanese and Japanese Americans living on the West Coast of the United States. Leaving behind everything they owned, they were forced to live under hostile conditions in camps, their futures uncertain. How do we honestly remember this critical time in our history? Three photographers set out to document life at Manzanar, an incarceration camp in the California desert.

AIM OF GAME Draw, memorize, or bluff your way to victory! There’s three ways to play in this party game: drawing, seeing, or saying. Players roll the dice and take a category card that matches the color shown on the dice. Pink means the player needs to draw one of the two prompts (easy or hard) for the other players to guess. Yellow means the player tries to memorize and then recall the color of one of the symbols on the card. Green tests bluffing skills, with the player trying to convince the others whether or not they’re being truthful about what’s on the card. The game ends when any player has won 3 cards of each color, and the player with the most points is the winner! WHO’S IT FOR Perfect for families and friends, it’s especially fun in big groups. WHAT’S INSIDE Includes 240 cards, sand timer, dice, pen, board and instructions. DRAW IT, SEE IT, SAY IT Package size: 5 x 6 x 3.7 in 150 x 130 x 95 mm Carton Quantity: 18 0810073341692 $18.00 sugg retail

AIM OF GAME First, pick a badge randomly and read it to yourself without showing the other players. Then, you must do anything you can think of to earn that badge while other players try to guess what achievement your badge is for. This isn’t charades though—you can speak, make noise and use nearby stuff like furniture, props, and even people! The player who has earned the most badges and pins by the end of the game is the ultimate adult!

Complete with bird facts, reference pages, and tips to help you identify what you’re looking at and why it’s doing whatever annoying thing it’s doing, birdwatching has never been so easy.
