“My songs are like my children—I expect them to
support me when I’m old! And here, for the first
time ever, we’re spotlighting my favorites in my new
book called Songteller. Not only will you be able to
revisit the lyrics, but I’ll tell you never-before-heard
stories behind the songs and we’ve even dug up
never-before-seen pictures and handwritten lyrics,
too. A “songteller” is what I am, and I’m so excited
to share my new book Songteller with you this Fall.”

GUERRILLA GIRLS:
THE ART OF BEHAVING BADLY
by the Guerrilla Girls

In 1985, a bunch of feminist masked avengers began plastering


posters all over downtown New York. They named galleries,
museums, critics, collectors, and white male artists who con-
tributed to an art system prejudiced against women and artists
of color. Since then, the collective has produced hundreds of
projects exposing bias and corruption in art, film, pop culture,
and politics. Their unforgettable graphics have become a global
phenomenon. This is the first book to document the Guerrilla
Girls’ entire wild career of provocative street campaigns, media
appearances, large-scale exhibitions at major museums, and
more. The Guerrilla Girls contextualize their visuals and elabo-
rate on their intersectional takedown of the patriarchy in their
own words throughout the book. This isn’t a monograph—it’s a THE GUERRILLA GIRLS are a group of political artists who have
call to arms. It even comes with a punch-out gorilla mask invit- been exposing gender biases and discrimination in art and culture for

How U.S. Women Won Suffrage,

By Bridget Quinn • Foreword By Nell Irvin Painter
Illustrations by 100 Women Artists

This is not your familiar history of women’s rights. It’s a collec-

Bridget Quinn tells an intersectional story of the women who

for equality ever since—from Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Audre
Lorde, and from the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee
Nation to the first woman to wear pants on the Senate floor. In
honor of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment
in 2020, 100 women artists have contributed to this book. Each

MEN TO AVOID IN ART AND LIFE
By Nicole Tersigni

In honor of all the women who have endured overbearing men


over the centuries, Men to Avoid in Art and Life epitomizes the
spirit of mansplaining with hilariously painful accuracy through
witty pairings of classical fine art and modern captions. Whether
it’s supplying keen insight on the female anatomy, providing an
eloquent defense of catcalling, or offering sage advice about
horseback riding to the woman who owns the horse, these less
than qualified men of antiquity dish out mediocrity as if it’s
pure genius. Through cringe-induced empathy, this timeless gift
book of shared experiences unites women across history in one
of the most powerful forms of resistance: laughter.

NICOLE TERSIGNI is a comedic writer experienced in improv comedy


and women’s advocacy. Her Twitter thread that inspired this book was a
social media sensation. She lives in Detroit, Michigan.

Surfing the Ends of the Earth
By Chris Burkard

Distant Shores is an impressive photographic record of


Chris Burkard’s search for wild, remote surfing destinations
around the globe. Burkard’s photographs are punctuated by
energized landscapes and moments of bliss. With the ocean
as his main muse, Burkard has consistently captured this
subject in timeless and expansive photographs. Through his
lens, surfing becomes a bridge between the comparatively
humble, human figure juxtaposed against awe-inspiring and
powerful, natural landscapes. After more than a decade on
this quest, Burkard has established himself as a major pho-
tographer in the surf, outdoor, and adventure communities.

CHRIS BURKARD is a California-based photographer with a fan

published numerous books, won many awards, and was recently

“IN WILDNESS IS THE


PRESERVATION OF THE WORLD”
FROM HENRY DAVID THOREAU PHOTOGRAPHS BY ELIOT PORTER

Introduction by Joseph Wood Krutch

CHRONICLE CHROMA

JUNE 22, 1853


As I come over the hill, I hear the wood thrush singing his evening lay. This is the only bird whose
note affects me like music, affects the flow and tenor of my thoughts, my fancy and imagination.
It lifts and exhilarates me. … It is a medicative draught to my soul. It is an elixir to my eyes and a
fountain of youth to all my senses. It changes all hours to an eternal morning. It banishes all trivial-
ness. It reinstates me in my dominion, makes me the lord of creation, is chief musician of my court.
This minstrel sings in a time, a heroic age, with which no event in the village can be contemporary.
How can they be contemporary when only the latter is temporary at all? … So there is something
in the music of the cow-bell, something sweeter and more nutritious, than in the milk which the
farmers drink. This thrush’s song is a ranz des vaches to me. I long for wildness, a nature which I cannot
put my foot through, woods where the woodthrush forever sings, where the hours are early morning
ones, and there is a dew on the grass, and the day is forever unproved, where I might have a fertile
unknown for a soil about me. I would go after the cows, I would watch the flocks of Admetus there
forever, only for my board and clothes, a New Hampshire everlasting and unfallen. … All that was
ripest and fairest in the wildness and the wild man is preserved and transmitted to us in the strain of

PRESERVATION OF THE WORLD


From Henry David Thoreau
Photographs by Eliot Porter

In Wildness is a vintage classic that pairs passages by writer


Henry David Thoreau alongside images by photographer
Eliot Porter. Porter and the Sierra Club founder, David
Brower, first published this bestselling, long-out-of-print
classic monograph in 1962, and it has been often referred
to as “the very first coffee-table book.” Although Porter and
Thoreau lived a century apart, their work beautifully exists OCTOBER 3, 1858

preservation of the natural environment. 120

ELIOT PORTER (1901–1990) was an iconic American photogra-


pher, most often associated with his outstanding large-format color
photographs of the natural world.
HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817–1862) was an American essayist,
poet, and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, Thoreau is
beloved especially for his classic book, Walden.
JANUARY 24, 1856
I have seen many a collection of stately elms which better deserved to be represented at the General
Court than the manikins beneath,—than the barroom and victualling cellar and groceries they over-
shadowed. When I see their magnificent domes, miles away in the horizon, over intervening valleys
and forests, they suggest a village, a community, there. But, after all, it is a secondary consideration
whether there are human dwellings beneath them; these may have long since passed away. I find
that into my idea of the village has entered more of the elm than of the human being. They are worth
many a political borough. They constitute a borough. The poor human representative of his party
sent out from beneath their shade will not suggest a tithe of the dignity, the true nobleness and com-
prehensiveness of view, the sturdiness and independence, and serene beneficence that they do. They
look from township to township. … They battle with the tempests of a century. See what scars they
bare, what limbs they lost before we were born! Yet they never adjourn; they steadily vote for their
principles, and send their roots farther and wider from the same center. They die at their posts, and

they leave a tough butt for the choppers to exercise themselves about, and a stump which serves for
their monument. They attend no caucus, they make no compromise, they use no policy. Their one
principle is growth. They combine a true radicalism with a true conservatism. Their radicalism is not
a cutting away of roots, but an infinite multiplication and extension of them under all surrounding

institutions. They take a firmer hold on the earth that they may rise higher into the heavens. … Their
conservatism is a dead but solid heart-wood, which is the pivot and firm column of support to all this
growth, appropriating nothing to itself, but forever by its support assisting to extend the area of their

do not, like men, from radicals turn conservatives. Their conservative part dies out first; their radical

WANTED A CROWN Bestseller

Verses for a Despotic Age • By John Lithgow

Following the success of New York Times bestseller Dumpty


comes award-winning actor and national bestselling author
John Lithgow’s next book of satirical poetry chronicling the era
of Trump madness. Darker, funnier, and more hard-hitting than
ever, Lithgow writes with poetic fury and cutting satire, taking
readers verse-by-verse through the last year of the absurd and
outrageous events surrounding Trump and his administration—
including poems about the impeachment, Rudy Giuliani, Mick
Mulvaney, Jay Sekulow, Jim Jordan, Roger Stone, and others.
With completely new poems and never-before-seen line draw-
ings, Lithgow will once again make readers laugh in frenzied
times with this mix of striking and humorous prose—disman-
tling the reign of Dumpty one stanza at a time.

RABID RUDY
What goes on with Rabid Rudy,
Monster of ineptitudy?
Dumpty’s spinning weathervane
Botched his mission in Ukraine.
Mixing bribes and dirty tricks,
He soiled our geopolitics.
Filled with rage and babbling
bluster,
“America’s Mayor” has lost his

JOHN LITHGOW is a prolific actor with two Tonys, six Emmys, two
Golden Globes, and two Oscar nominations. He has starred in the hit
TV series 3rd Rock from the Sun, Dexter, and The Crown, and in criti-
cally acclaimed films such as The World According to Garp, Terms of
Endearment, Bombshell, and Late Night. He will also act in the forth-
coming HBO series Perry Mason and the FX drama series The Old Man.
Lithgow has appeared on Broadway twenty-five times and in England
with both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.
He is also the bestselling author of nine children’s picture books, and his
recordings for kids have landed him four Grammy nominations.

IF YOU COME TO EARTH


By Sophie Blackall
If you come to Earth, there are a few things you need to know . . .
We live in all kinds of places.
In all kinds of homes.
In all kinds of families.
Each of us is different. But all of us are amazing.
And, together, we share one beautiful planet.

Inspired by the thousands of children she has met during her


travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the
Children, Sophie Blackall has created a glorious guide to our
home planet. Told as a heartwarming and funny letter from a
young child, it is far more than a simple compendium, it is a call
for us to take care of both Earth and each other.

SOPHIE BLACKALL has illustrated many books, including the Ivy +


Bean series and Ruby’s Wish. Originally from Australia, she now lives in
Brooklyn, New York.

NEIGHBORS
By Kasya Denisevich

They’re everywhere: next door, above, and even below. More


often than not, they are a mystery, a presence suggested by low
hums, footfalls, or perhaps a slammed door. These beguiling
beings are neighbors. They are all around us and ever-present
and yet, somehow, surprisingly elusive. This contemplative pic-
ture book by debut author-illustrator Kasya Denisevich explores
the many ways we think about those we exist among but who
remain strangers until we make the brave and affirming deci-
sion to connect. As Neighbors illustrates so beautifully, that
moment of connection is a portal to a world of possibility.

KASYA DENISEVICH is a Russian-born author and illustrator now


living in Barcelona. Her work has been featured in the 2017 Bologna
Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition. This is her first book.

BUTTERFLIES BELONG HERE


A Story of One Idea, Thirty Kids,
and a World of Butterflies
By Deborah Hopkinson • Illustrated by Meilo So

I know what to look for: large black and orange wings with a
border of small white specks, flitting from flower to flower, sip-
ping nectar. But though I looked hard, I couldn’t find even one.
I wondered if monarch butterflies belonged here. I wondered if
I did, too. In this moving story of community conservation, a
girl finds a home in a new place, and a way to help other small
travelers. From Deborah Hopkinson and Meilo So, the acclaimed
team behind Follow the Moon Home, comes a powerful story
of everyday activism and hope, and proof that even the smallest
of us are capable of amazing transformations.

DEBORAH HOPKINSON, author of many award-winning

THE RAINFOREST
By Kate Messner
Illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal

Kate Messner and Christopher Silas Neal take early readers on


a thrilling tour of one of the most diverse ecosystems on planet
earth: the rainforests of Central America. Under the canopy of
the rainforest, hundreds of animals make their homes—from
the slender parrot snake to the blue morpho butterfly. But up in
the leaves hides another world, where toucans and pale-billed
woodpeckers chatter and call, capuchin monkeys swing from
vines, and slow-moving sloths wait out daily thunderstorms.
KATE MESSNER is an award-winning author whose many books for

TO FIND THE LOVE!

LOVE CAN COME IN MANY WAYS


By Terry Pierce • Illustrated by Suzy Ultman

A smile, a kiss, a word of praise—love can come in many ways.

This heartwarming novelty book celebrates the many diverse

wing to discover a baby cuddled underneath! Then lift a felt
speech bubble to discover the words “You are loved!” Beneath
each of the 10 felt flaps—in 9 different eye-catching colors—lies
a wealth of snuggles, hugs, and loving engagement. From a
mama frog’s sweet songs to a papa elephant’s warm hug, delight
in the ways creatures all over the world, in all shapes and sizes,
reaffirm their family bonds. Perfect for Valentine’s Day displays,
this charming book will also resonate year-round as a go-to
new baby gift.

By Lisa Nola • Illustrated by Camilla Perkins
Taking time to journal together is a meaningful way for couples to
connect. Designed to spark conversation and intimacy, this illustrated
journal features over 75 prompts about a couple’s past, present, and
future. From “first impressions of each other” and “what I love about
you” to “things we agree to disagree on” and “things we hope to
experience together,” topics are thought provoking, honest, sweet,
and humorous. With a handful of activities (like drawing amateur
portraits of each other and creating your own “would you rather”
questions), Date Night In invites couples to unplug, rediscover each
other, and have fun creating a lovely keepsake of their life together.
