IN-PERSON EVENT WITH Joshua Nguyen



Joshua Nguyen and Maggie Graber discuss
Joshua's new book of poetry COME CLEAN!


Joshua Nguyen's sharp, songlike, and often experimental collection compartmentalizes past trauma—sexual and generational—through the quotidian. Poems aim to confront the speaker's past by physically, and mentally, cleaning up. Here, the Asian-American masculine interrogates the domestic space through the sensual and finds healing through family and in everyday rhythms: rinsing rice until the water runs clear...

IN-PERSON SIGNING with Jennifer Baughn



Jennifer Baughn signs her book, BUILDINGS OF MISSISSIPPI!

Although accounts of its architecture have long conjured visions of white-columned antebellum mansions, its towns, buildings, and landscapes are ultimately far more complex, engaging, and challenging. This guidebook surveys a range of such locations, from Native American mounds and villages to plantation outbuildings that bear witness to the lives of enslaved African Americans, from twentieth-century...

Vince Venturini and Doug Shanks
sign their new book, ONE DIRECTION HOME!


For decades, south Jackson was thought of as the other part of the city. It was considered home to persons who were lower class compared to their counterparts in north and west Jackson. Some even dismissed it as the least desirable and progressive part of the city. For those of us who grew up in south Jackson, it was a special place, a safe place and a place where life-long friendships and impressions were made...
