Welcome to the neighborhood
I’ve added a few more press blogs to our university press blogroll recently, and I wanted to bring them to your attention and encourage you to go check them out.
Island Press focuses on environmental issues. Their Eco-Compass blog features posts by authors discussing green development, conservation, wildlife, sustainability, population growth, and more.
NYU Press, whose blog From the Square has come back new and redesigned after a hiatus, features posts by authors, links to interviews and podcasts, and even a book trailer.
Princeton University Press has a new blog in full swing with articles from authors, interviews, publicity news, and a special post from the Press’s economics editor, who helped bring to print a host of books that provide good insight into the current financial crisis.
I look forward to reading news from these folks in the future.
Oh! And Happy Halloween! If you plan on spending the night in a North Carolina graveyard, take a flashlight and a copy of Sticks and Stones: Three Centuries of North Carolina Gravemarkers, by Ruth Little (with photos by Tim Buchman). Learn a little something while you watch for ghosts!
