The Overstory: A Novel | Richard Powers

Oh. My. Word! This book! These words! Only 4% in, but this writing is genius. No spoilers, but if you've read it, you'll get this pic from Vesterheim, the Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, IA. I lived in #Iowa for 30+ years on *Chestnut* Street. Hello @librarylady Now in #Tennessee, I'm proud to know Stacy Clark, of the U.S. Forestry Service, who #CarryThatWeight to try to save the American Chestnut. https://www.acf.org/ #BeatleMaynia @Eggs

In 1890s #SanFrancisco, Phoebe Smith is committed to Goldengrove asylum. Younger sister, Charlotte, blames herself & devises a rescue plan. Macallister masterfully weaves Greek Muses, romantic intrigue, & #historical detail prompting reflection on how far we have come, yet how far we have to go to achieve justice and #equality for #women and for compassionate mental #healthcare. #FavoritesofMarch #LiteraryLuck @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

Love Jasper Fjorde's #UniqueCharacterNames in this #series. MC Thursday Next is a SpecOps agent for LiteraTec. Her boss is Victor Analogy, her partner is Bowden Cable. Her Uncle Mycroft, invented the Prose Portal, which allows real-world individuals to enter books.

Fairhope French Quarter prepping for Mardi Gras. Lucky to find Woman 99 at Page & Palette #bookstore. Sat right down with "clouds in my coffee" at Latte Da. Phoebe probably feels she has been given away to Goldengrove asylum, perhaps more like taken away.

Middlesex: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides
post image

One of the best first lines ever! Eugenides captures the complexities of so many social issues, including the personal effects of the #Detroit67 riot. It's worth examining whether naming it Rebellion or Uprising is more useful in understanding its causes. It was, indeed, a long hot summer before my Junior year of High School. 💔 #MittenLitten #TimbitTunes @TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen

#LoversinaDangerousTime and place in this fascinating #historicalfiction based on a real deaf-blind woman who supposedly taught Anne Sullivan the manual alphabet which she taught to Helen Keller (childhood home pic from recent trip.)

The man getting unloaded in the Easy died of a heart attack.This isn't a spoiler as he's barely incidental to the story. It's a good read, where four women take a cruise down the Mississippi river, recalling the 34 years since they first travelled the route as college students on a raft. Google doesn't provide a definitive answer why New Orleans is called The Big Easy, but it does seem to fit somehow.

I listened to the audio and found it captivating. McCrumb revives the true tale of Frankie Silver, a woman hanged for murdering her husband in the 1830s. Her father's message to "Die with it in you, Frankie" haunt a sheriff more than100 years later, causing him to question whether he wrongly sent a man to prison 20 years prior. As the inmate faces the electric chair in Nashville, Tennessee, the sheriff rushes to find the truth. #truecrime

lynneamch While published in 1998, death penalty questions remain today. The method has changed from hanging, to the electric chair, to lethal injection. Another execution is scheduled next week in Tennessee for a man convicted of killing 2 men during a drug deal 34 years ago. The Tennessee Supreme Court is currently hearing a case filed by 32 death row inmates who claim the current method is a violation of the 8th ammendment. 8mo
