It’s been another great week for Beacon Press books in the media! Reverend William Barber II, author of The Third Reconstruction, had a prominently displayed op-ed “The Retreat From Voting Rights” in the New York Times. Meanwhile, over at the Boston Globe’s health and science publication STAT, author Timothy Caulfield and his book, Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?, received some nice attention via an author Q&A after the book won a Canadian Science Writers’ Association award.
Christopher Emdin’s hot new title, For White Folks Who Teach In the Hood..., continues to make headlines. He was recently interviewed for Mother Jones and Slate’s education blog, “Schooled.” And this week's new release, Erika Janik’s Pistols and Petticoats, had a slideshow featured on Time.com that showed vintage photos of some of America’s first lady detectives and police officers.
Forthcoming, keep an eye on the Science section at the New York Times, where Ann Neumann's The Good Death will be reviewed on May 3rd.
