Book News Roundup – May 23, 2014

WildBerriesCongratulations to Vancouver children’s book author, Julie Flett! Her picture book, Wild Berries/Pakwa che Menisu, won this year’s First Nation Communities Read campaign.

Margaret Atwood is making Maddaddam-inspired beer! No, I’m not kidding.

Friends of award-winning memoirist Carmen Aguirre (an NVCL Local Author Series Alum) are hosting a fundraiser for her to recoup lost royalties of her book, Something Fierce.

Two of the 15 newest words added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary include Selfie and Catfish.

I’ve been wondering this very thing.

Happy weekend!
