"You Carry Mother Earth Within You"

April 22, 2023

Today we commemorate Earth Day with a selection of books that celebrate the land and its flora and fauna in various ways. One new book below combines nature and language. Of the four novels, one we will celebrate at The Center with a Brazilian musical event; one examines climate change through animal extinction; one ponders coming of age in Nigeria; and one brings us to Australia for what J.M. Coetzee calls “the strangest book you are likely to read this year,” reviewed by our Bookstore Manager, Jory Southurst.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
Buyer, The Center for Fiction Bookstore
