Book Summary: Annemarie “Shug” Wilcox is clever and brave and true (on the inside anyway). And she’s about to become your new best friend in this enchanting middle grade novel from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (soon to be a major motion picture!), Jenny Han. Annemarie Wilcox, or Shug as her family calls her, is beginning to think there's nothing worse than being twelve. She's too tall, too freckled, and way too flat-chested. Shug is sure that there's not one good or amazing thing about her. And now she has to start junior high, where the friends she counts most dear aren't acting so dear anymore -- especially Mark...

Book Summary: Growing up in a very small city of Natchitoches, Louisiana, the oldest one in the Louisiana Purchase, author, Bonita Grace Moses, was not only the youngest sibling but also the only girl, along with four brothers, born to Elena Moses. She was reared by her mother and her grandmother, Georgiana Moses, in a small three-room house. In Mama Shug: the Bridge Whom We Loved So Dearly, Moses shares her life story and how it was particularly influenced by her God-fearing grandmother, affectionately known as Mama Shug, who lived to the age of ninety-eight. This memoir narrates how Mama Shug quit school at age seven to care for her siblings, but she instilled the importance of a good education in her grandchildren. Full of wisdom, Moses’ grandmother also preached how faith in the Lord was central to life. She was a woman who lived what she practiced. A testament to the strength, tenacity, spirituality, and love of Mama Shug, this memoir describes the life of one woman who paved the way and provided an important foundation helping her grandchildren achieve success.

From Modernist Entombment to Postmodernist Exhumation

Book Summary: How fictional representations of dead bodies develop over the twentieth century is the central concern of Lisa K. Perdigao's study of American writers. Arguing that the crisis of bodily representation can be traced in the move from modernist entombment to postmodernist exhumation, Perdigao considers how works by writers from F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Willa Cather, and Richard Wright to Jody Shields, Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler, and Jeffrey Eugenides reflect changing attitudes about dying, death, and mourning. For example, while modernist writers direct their plots toward a transformation of the dead body by way of metaphor, postmodernist writers exhume the transformed body, reasserting its materiality. Rather than viewing these tropes in oppositional terms, Perdigao examines the implications for narrative of the authors' apparently contradictory attempts to recover meaning at the site of loss. She argues that entombment and exhumation are complementary drives that speak to the tension between the desire to bury the dead and the need to remember, indicating shifts in critical discussions about the body and about the function of aesthetics in relation to materialized violence and loss.
