Please let others know: Because of the overwhelming demand, the replay of last night’s In Conversation with @JasonReynolds83 and @KielyBrendan will be available until noon (ET) tomorrow, 6/2. ALL of the authors’ proceeds will go to @BlackVisionsMN.
A sobering, insightful conversation. My privilege let me attend last night while others protested and put their bodies at risk on the street. White people: listen, engage, embark on the life's work of being anti-racist. Racism is a white people problem and we need to solve it.
NYPD officer just called a female protester a “stupid fucking bitch” and threw her to the ground

This was me, and I want to make one thing clear to all the people that are commenting lies below this video. I did NOT spit in this officers face. I was wearing a face mask. He told me to get out of the street and then immediately threw me out of the way.
Unfucking real though what else should we expect? Every damn day, the current president assails the media. He hates the truth. This is what a police state looks like. And of course the reporter is a non-combative man of color. Of course he is.
One last book stop, the north woods of Minnesota, the setting of WINTER LOON by @EsdeeBernhard (that's me). This beautiful photo courtesy of my kid who will head home this weekend from college in CA after a 2-month pandemic stopover in MN. Not bad, kid.
This is cheating because I took over the Belmont Books account today. But I love this picture and love thinking of my boy in this beautiful place. He was shown tremendous kindness over the last couple months for which I'm so grateful. I'm also excited to get him home...
This is happening! Join @CharMcConaghy and me on Friday for a conversation about arctic terns, salmon fishing, wandering feet, love stories, climate change, and the importance of hope. Thanks @BookExpoAmerica for having us! 🐝🐝 buzz buzz
I’m so excited about this book! Absolutely loved it.
I talked to Lydia Millet about climate change, guns, the pandemic, whether or not all adults are assholes, and making herself laugh while she writes. A Children's Bible is out today!
I *loved* A CHILDREN’S BIBLE, Millet’s vision, her prose and humor. Seriously, you want to read this interview and this novel.
It's been a year since WINTER LOON debuted and I am so incredibly thankful to readers who have embraced this novel and to friends and fellow writers who have accompanied me on this journey. Peace to you all in this season when hope can be heavy. Take courage!
