The Paperback Exchange
By: Fanoula Sevastos

The first thing you notice is the smell. Not the enormous quilts of orange and yellow and purple flowers that hang from the balcony, not the broad glass shelves filled with homey arts and crafts. It's the smell of cinnamon and roses that strikes you as odd and leads you to the beaky wooden pelican that sits snug on a tree stump near the register. Only then do you find the books.

Flood Waters
By: Melanie Levinson

When I ask for academic questions, am I married, they ask, or engaged? When I say no, they shift in their seats and narrow their eyes. The room is silent, but their thoughts are so loud they echo off the concrete walls: Dangerous, I hear. Dangerous.

Spreading the Light:
Abigal S. Duniway

By: Dorothy M. Ashe

Duniway carried the message up and down the Pacific Coast, to the East and back, in lecture halls, churches, and living rooms, from primitive settlements to the legislature. Her speeches, stories, articles, books, and poems all extolled women's need for the vote--and how to get it. She was never hesitant about delivering her particular brand of maverick pragmatism to her sisters in the national suffrage organizations who had, she felt, thrust their prohibition platform on the western branch of the movement.

A Most Memorable Event
By: Charlotte Davis

No longer could any country pretend that torturing its people was all right. No longer could any country say that it was all right to deny the freedoms of religion and expression. No longer could any country demolish the freedom of speech without having the rest of the world say they were wrong in doing so.

Be a Goddess!
By: Francesca De Grandis
Review by Phoebe Wray

There is cause for celebration! At last, there is a new book about the "wild, natural power of Goddess Spirituality" that is so gracefully written, and endlessly useful.
