Creekfinding • A True Story by Jacqueline Briggs Martin,illustrated by Claudia McGhee,published by #universityofminnesotapress  "Sometimes excavators help find lost creeks." Once a man bought a cornfield so he could grow a prairie. His neighbor told him that he used to catch trout in that very spot that was now a cornfield! "But someone gave him an old photograph, and he marked the creek's path." He brought in an excavator that found the old stream and then added grass and rocks. "Water was right. Food was right." This book shows what can happen if you try hard enough. Sometimes we think that things can't be replaced or repaired,but sometimes all we need to do is try and wait to see what happens.Its a great science book for young children and the illustrations are simply breathtaking! #picturebooks  #preschool  #homeschool  #unschool  #homeeducation  #raisingreaders  #readingbasket  #readaloudrevival  #kidsbooks  #kidsbookstagram  #books  #bookworms  #bookstagram  #booksofinstagram  #bibliophile  #fish  #science  #nature  #toddlers  #creek  #wildlife

I have been rereading this book my father recommended to me some years ago. I have seen it on his shelves since my early childhood. It is called “Canoe Country,” and is about a 3 week journey through the lakes and rivers of far northern Minnesota. It is a beautiful and fascinating book, full of intriguing text and delightful illustrations. These are produced by the husband and wife team of illustrator, Francis Lee Jaques and writer, Florence Page Jaques. It was originally published in 1938. It gives a personal, yet informative, view into a seemingly different world than most of us ever get to experience. One of the odder passages of the book is the one shown in the photos, the one about the dancing man. This also gives a window into my parents home state. #canoecountry  #minnesota  #wilderness  #mn  #minn  #stpaulmn  #saintpaulmn  #boundarywaters  #universityofminnesotapress  #universityofminnesota  #minneapolis  #florencepagejaques  #francisleejaques  #nature  #ilovetoread  #myparents  #dancingman  #illustrations  #francisleeandflorencepagejaques  #bookfrommychildhood  #1938

📚 What’s your favorite summer book? Are you much of a book lover? I’ve never been a huge reader - I always preferred playing/listening to music or geeking out on anything technology-related. Yes, I’m a music and tech nerd! 🎶🤓 📚 I’m changing all that this Summer by reading Vacationland by Sarah Stonich. It’s all about lives that intersect through a lake resort in Northern Minnesota. 🛶 What have you been reading this summer? What’s your favorite summer book? 🤓

Swede Hollow | Ola Larsmo Swede Hollow is a real place in St Paul, MN. For decades in the late 19th to mid-20th century, it was also a poor neighborhood housing waves of immigrants--first Swedes, then Irish, Italian, Polish, and Mexican. Now it is a park. For this novel Larsmo meticulously researched life in the Hollow for MN's Swedish immigrants in particular. The details--locations, businesses, union activities, and so on--are all accurate. Only the main characters are fictional--a few of the minor characters were real people. Also included are a few newspaper articles that are from the St Paul paper. For his story, Larsmo focuses on a family of 5. We see their journey, their struggle in New York, and then their settling into the Hollow with people who had been on the same ship. We see the children grow, the neighbors, the jobs, and how life moves on. Nothing shocking here, it's all very believable. I have read a lot of immigration novels over the last 30 years, and this one stands out in its historically accurate setting--and given that it is from the University of Minnesota Press, this is not all that surprising. This would also make a good middle grade/high school read, with a shotgun wedding but no graphic anything, no cursing, some drunks but definitely no glorification of alcohol. In a change from most current immigration fiction, this was actually written in Swedish, with a 2016 publication date--100 years after the novel takes place. Larsmo is an award-winning Swedish journalist/academic who spent some time in Minnesota and that was when much of his research was done. It was written in Swedish and translated by Tiina Nunnally, who also did the fabulous recent translation of Kristin Lavransdatter. Thanks to NetGalley and the U of Minnesota Press for providing me with this Galley.

#Repost  @jacob_laneria  ・・・ Best book to read why Filipinos are everywhere.

Truth is the word that came to my mind when I was reading this book. And that's not something I expected to think about in a book focusing on fungibility, fluidity and fugitivity. But what if that is the only way of achieving #truth  or at least a truth, a truth told by #blacktrans  themselves? What if being #fluid  , #fungible  and #fugitive  is the only way of experience and telling our own truth? This book is an ode to the #shapeshifter  , the #crossdresser  , the #transsexual  , the chameleon and the phoenix, the one who dared #againstallodds  to see, act, imagine herself in her own fullness, to live unapologetically. And that act of living your own truth fully is a threat to so many other people in this country who have cemented their own insecure and fragile lives on "winning" over the other part, on obliterating and destroying the other part. United States is a country historically drunk on competition, a fierce competition that has to prove its glory, power and dominance by eliminating, vanishing, massacring, killing the other part, the "losing" part, the "weak" part. What #crileysnorton  does best in this book is placing the intricacies of being on a perennial state of losing in an #academic  and historical framework. Full disclosure: this is a heavily and erudite academic text. So if you're not into that, then do not read this book at all. I personally loved the painstaking and deep intellectual reach in which #blackonbothsides  is created and shines from. If we want to give a transcending voice to the victims of so much anti-trans legislation and anti-trans violence in this country, we need these research studies and invade academic spaces, ivory towers and centers of power. This book does that. #highlyrecommended  #snorton  #genderqueerlit  #universityofminnesotapress  #blacklivesmatter  #translivesmatter  #lambdaliteraryaward  #sylviariveraaward

#Hyperobjects : #Philosophy  and #Ecology  After the End of the World #TimothyMorton  #UniversityofMinnesotaPress , 2013 - 229 pages #Globalwarming  is perhaps the most dramatic example of what Timothy Morton calls "hyperobjects"--Entities of such vast temporal and spatial dimensions that they defeat traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place. Morton explains what hyperobjects are and their impact on how we think, how we coexist, and how we experience our politics, ethics, and art. #acpl  #librarybooks  #nonfiction

Published by the University of Minnesota Press, Magic Realism for Non-Believers is a memoir from Anika Fajardo, a Latinx author who was born in Colombia but grew up in Minnesota. She is the product of an American mother and a Colombian father. The crux of her story is that she, having grown up in a single-parent home, never really knew Renzo, her father, or her Latinx heritage. Read my full review on my blog (link in bio).

Sinto-me verdadeiramente honrada pela oportunidade de compartilhar o meu conto pessoal “Nem Tudo é uma Mancha de Flores Silvestres” entre estas poderosas mulheres escritoras.

✴✴✴✴✴Book Review✴✴✴✴✴ Tittle: In the Night of Memory Author: Linda LeGarde Grover . Released April 2nd 2019 . This novel was a very emotional and deeply wounding read. A story unfolds in which the two main characters suffer a great deal through various hardships, something that isn’t uncommon to their native brothers and sisters. The story takes place mostly in the Mozhay Point Reservation in Northern Minnesota, during a time where many native women are disappearing. The story has a very unique voice. It is told in different POV’s by the various women in the lives of the two main characters. Azure Sky and Rainfall Dawn are only babies when their mother Loretta gives them up to the county. The girls are then separated for years and sent to different foster homes before finally getting sent to the same home. They do their best to push forward with every move they make, but they also keep hoping that their mother will return and make their family whole again. I found this novel gripping in some points, but also hard to grasp in others. The pace was set in a very interesting way by slowing down some time frames of the girls’ lives and then by speeding up other portions. I found this to be something I disliked about the novel because just when I was deeply immersed in the story of Azure and Rain, I was pushed forward in a very detached way. Every time this happened, I lost the sense of connection I was building with the characters. This is my first novel from Linda LaGarde Grover and I found her writing very emotional and deep, however some parts were confusing as there was a lot of history I was not educated on. This may just be a reason to educate myself more on Native American history. Overall I liked the book I gave it three stars in Goodreads. #inthenightofmemory  #lindalegardegrover  #bluebook  #newbook  #review  #⭐⭐⭐  #Goodreads  #goodbook  #bookstoread  #bookstagram  #bookish  #reading  #bookstagramer  #reader  #readersofinstagram  #readmyreview  #reads  #Aprilreads  #booksbooksandmorebooks  #fiction  #hardcover  #universityofminnesotapress 

A compelling story of a journey home of two girls, Azure and Rain . Their hardships and struggles after being placed in the foster care system. NetGalley #Universityofminnesotapress  #bookreview  #bookstagram  #bookworm 

Happy Book Birthday to this lovely book! I received this copy from @bookishhq  and @uminnpress  on Saturday so I haven't had a chance to read it yet! 📖 ▪️ In The Night of Memory by Linda LeGarde Grover is written about the two children of a missing Native woman. It is also written by a Native woman. I find that it's tough to find books written by and about Native American women. I'm really excited to start this one! 📖 ▪️ Synopsis : Two lost sisters find family, and themselves, among the voices of an Ojibwe reservation When Loretta surrenders her young girls to the county and then disappears, she becomes one more missing Native woman in Indian Country’s long devastating history of loss. But she is also a daughter of the Mozhay Point Reservation in northern Minnesota and the mother of Azure and Rain, ages 3 and 4, and her absence haunts all the lives she has touched—and all the stories they tell in this novel. In the Night of Memory returns to the fictional reservation of Linda LeGarde Grover’s previous award-winning books, introducing readers to a new generation of the Gallette family as Azure and Rain make their way home. After a string of foster placements, from cold to kind to cruel, the girls find their way back to their extended Mozhay family, and a new set of challenges, and stories, unfolds. Deftly, Grover conjures a chorus of women’s voices (sensible, sensitive Azure’s first among them) to fill in the sorrows and joys, the loves and the losses that have brought the girls and their people to this moment. Though reconciliation is possible, some ruptures simply cannot be repaired they can only be lived through, or lived with. In the Night of Memory creates a nuanced, moving, often humorous picture of two Ojibwe girls becoming women in light of this lesson learned in the long, sharply etched shadow of Native American history. 📖 ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #inthenightofmemory  #lindalegardegrover  #bookishfirst  #universityofminnesotapress  #diversereads  #aprilreads  #bookstagram  #whyiread  #booksharks  #booksaremyfriends  #booksoutside  #bookstagrammer  #bookishgirl  #bookworm  #bibliophile  #igreads  #booklover  #booknerd  #readersofinstagram  #constantreader

I really loved this one! I requested Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes) by Lorna Landvik on a whim from @netgalley  without knowing much about it but it was really great! Landvik has a really fun whimsical writing style — the story doesn’t take itself too seriously, despite being a book that encourages the reader to think about big, serious thoughts. The story is presented in part as old newspaper columns, juxtaposed with modern day considerations and reactions, so the storytelling was really innovative and unexpected to me! It’s also a book that has a really fun slew of inter-connected characters, all focused around one woman who manages to inspire them, despite their varying issues. ✨ Quick spoiler alert: There is some political hashing outs in the book, and I full on cried at Haze’s columns about the 2016 election. It was as if someone had snuck into my head and wrote down everything that’s been running around in there for the past few years. Still, the book strikes a really hopeful note, and it’s laugh-out-loud funny — I love being pleasantly surprised by books and Chronicles of a Radical Hag definitely exceeded my expectations! ✨ Synopsis: Haze Evans has been writing a column in her local paper for almost fifty years. When she suffers a stroke and ends up unconscious in the hospital, the newspaper publisher, Susan McGrath, and other members of the newspaper staff rally together to continue Haze’s voice and presence at the paper -- by publishing her old columns again along with both old and new reader responses. Even McGrath’s fourteen year old son, Sam, begrudgingly gets involved in sorting through decades worth of old columns. However, Sam (who is still reeling from his parents' recent separation) quickly learns that Haze’s columns might just be exactly what he needs.

I have been rereading this book my father recommended to me some years ago. I have seen it on his shelves since my early childhood. It is called “Canoe Country,” and is about a 3 week journey through the lakes and rivers of far northern Minnesota. It is a beautiful and fascinating book, full of intriguing text and delightful illustrations. These are produced by the husband and wife team of illustrator, Francis Lee Jaques and writer, Florence Page Jaques. It was originally published in 1938. It gives a personal, yet informative, view into a seemingly different world than most of us ever get to experience. One of the odder passages of the book is the one shown in the photos, the one about the dancing man. This also gives a window into my parents home state. #canoecountry  #minnesota  #wilderness  #mn  #minn  #stpaulmn  #saintpaulmn  #boundarywaters  #universityofminnesotapress  #universityofminnesota  #minneapolis  #florencepagejaques  #francisleejaques  #nature  #ilovetoread  #myparents  #dancingman  #illustrations  #francisleeandflorencepagejaques  #bookfrommychildhood  #1938

Incredible to celebrate a friend's stellar accomplishment at her book launch. Doubly incredible to be at the Eagle, with an accordian playing between readings! All I want to do today is read #laurentiandivide  #sarahstonich  #universityofminnesotapress  #eagle34 

If you’re a fan of The Replacements, and really everyone should be, you need to read this book. It was written by former roadie Bill Sullivan and it’s an easy read of tour stories. It’s no secret that #thereplacements  had some substance issues and got into a lot of trouble on the road, so this book is quite funny at times. I found this book in Missoula, surprisingly enough. Not sure how easy it is to find. . #punkbook  #punkrock  #paulwesterberg  @bashnpop  #billsullivan  #universityofminnesotapress  @thereplacements 

Today’s commute read was as incendiary as the film, which I just watched last night. Pretty hard to get hold of Third Cinema titles, I think The Battle of Algiers easily just slipped into my favourite films ever list. Daulatzai surveys the 50 years of the film’s impact to various divergent groups, juxtaposed to upheavals in different parts of the globe. Quick, clear, urgent. This is how I like my pamphlets AND my film studies. . “This is why the film is significant today: not because it seemingly captures ‘terrorists at work,’ and thereby provides a kind of voyeurism or even ‘teaching tool’ in the post-9/11 climate, but because it helps to reveal the continuities between the era of decolonization and the present. That is, the ‘War on Terror’ is not a rupture per se but is rather another chapter in an ongoing campaign of counterinsurgency again the Global South, one that of course started centuries ago with colonialism proper, continued with neocolonial control through Bretton Woods, the IMF and Third World debt, extended with the Cold War, deepened with ‘globalization’ and neoliberalism, and continues today under the rubric of the ‘War on Terror.’ The Battle of Algiers, then, is relevant precisely because the very issues the film raised about self-determination have yet to be fully contended with—decolonization being an unfinished project that continues to haunt the imperial present.” . . #igreads  #bookstagram  #sohaildaulatzai  #50thanniversary  #thebattleofalgiers  #gillopontecorvo  #labattagliadialgeri  #labatailledalger  #algerianwar  #francosolinas  #urbanguerilla  #anticolonialism  #frenchcolonialism  #casbah  #waronterror  #thirdcinema  #tricontinental  #blackpanthers  #redarmyfaction  #bandungconference  #decolonization  #revolution  #cinema  #filmstudies  #culturalstudies  #pastasprologue  #imperialism  #neoliberalism  #forerunners  #universityofminnesotapress 

Probably one of the most extensive film studies I’ve encountered, the sheer number of films discussed will make you crave for more. Favourite chapters on B-movies produced in the Philippines (that Tarantino loved) and movies tackling presence of US bases. Despite citing Fredric Jameson and Rey Chow as theoretical anchors, Capino hesitates in pulling punches on aspects of the political-economy, a little too liberal for me. Capino is currently writing his second book on Lino Brocka. . “One of the central tropes of Philippine cinema in the last six decades, the American fantasy occurs in the plots, figures, and settings of commercial and art pictures. In Philippine melodramas, one finds bar girls seeking GIs, young women raped by GIs, and GI babies who dream of reclaiming their white father’s lost affections. Filipino science-fiction movies teem with American nuclear experts, cold war figures, and monsters of US origins. Cowboys populate Filipino comedies, along with imitation Tarzans, Supergirls, and Maria von Trapps. The American landscapes and its built environment—Central Park and the Golden Gate Bridge— furnish the setting for the triumphs and tragedies of Filipino nurses and migrant labourers. While the former subjects of US colonialism remain practically invisible in Hollywood pictures, Americans and the states have kept their place as the primary others and elsewheres in Philippine cinema.” . . . #igreads  #bookstagram  #josecapino  #dreamfactories  #philippinecinema  #filmstudies  #film  #cinema  #colonialism  #usimperialism  #hollywood  #reychow  #fredricjameson  #filmcriticism  #linobrocka  #bmovies  #usmilitarybase  #migrantworkers  #filipinanurse  #quintintarantino  #coldwar  #gibaby  #diasporiccinema  #culturalcriticism  #culturalstudies  #americanstudies  #universityofminnesotapress 

Flying “Indians” smacking into buildings, wild animals moving in and taking over a small town, and a child and his grandfather discovering that the only way to possibly explain the behaviour of colonial Europeans is that they are an alien people transported from the world of Star Trek... this is the kind of story you will find in Thomas King’s A Short History of Indians in Canada, along with other more straightforward narratives. King’s stories are simple on the surface, covering ideas such as failed relationships, intergenerational conflict, respect for nature and racism in a slightly ironic and lighthearted tone that belies the depth and complexity of his ideas. After reading each story, many only several pages long, I was left with the feeling that I should sit down and analyse his symbolism and the nature of his allegory to really understand what was going on in his writing. Unfortunately, I’m not that kind of reader, so I likely missed out on a lot, but I was still deeply moved by some stories and laughed at others, and was able to recognize the absurdity of how mainstream North American society commodifies and stereotypes Indigenous peoples. Overall a very well-written and valuable book, but perhaps one best appreciated in small sips. #book  #books  #bookish  #bookworm  #bookreview  #bookreviews  #reading  #read  #thomasking  #ashorthistoryofindiansincanada  #indigenousliterature  #firstnationsliterature  #shortstories  #universityofminnesotapress  #rplbc  @rplbc
