Books I'm looking forward to reading:
Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices, edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Leatherdale
Anthology covering 64 Native artists who work in various mediums: "art, food, the written word, sport, dance, and fashion". Every review I've seen of it has been GLOWING.
Patient Zero: Solving the Mysteries of Deadly Epidemics, by Marilee Peters
The history of epidemiology. THAT'S ALL I NEED TO HEAR, HAND IT OVER.
Prison Boy, by Sharon E. McKay
This sounds amazingly depressing: an orphanage closes, leaving the kids homeless; they end up on the street and the older one takes a job delivering packages; one of the packages ends up being a bomb; the kids end up arrested for terrorism, locked away and tortured for information that they don't have. Which, ag. But there's a fantasy element, too—the older kid mentally retreats to another world—and I'm curious to see how McKay handles it all.
