Beacon Press started the summer with some great media coverage for our books and authors. Ann Neumann, author of The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America, spoke with PRI’s The World about the complexities around burying the body of mass murderer Omar Mateen. In These Times published a wonderful review of Atef Abu Saif’s forthcoming memoir The Drone Eats with Me: A Gaza Diary. Linda Wertheimer was featured in the CBS News special report “Religion & Democracy” which highlighted her book Faith Ed: Teaching about Religion in an Age of Intolerance. And Martin Moran was interviewed by The Denver Post about his new book All The Rage, and landed in the #2 spot of their bestselling non-fiction list.
Also, in celebration of this year's Pride Month, Daisy Hernandez’s memoir A Cup of Water Under My Bed was included in the National Book Foundation’s “Pride Month Reading List, 2016.”
