About the books:
Wildlife: In Wildlife, Miranda Beeson sinks her observational teeth into the living world-shape-shifting, role-playing, tracking the behavior of creatures —both homo sapiens and other species who inhabit our planet. What is our social contract with one another? With the planet we live on? Who will appropriate who or what? In Wildlife, beasts of al kinds (radioactive and more stalk the “civilized” world.
The Hurricane Book: In this powerful debut, Claudia Acevedo-Quiñones pieces together the story of her family and Puerto Rico using a captivating combination of historical facts, poems, maps, bits and pieces of overheard conversations, and fragmented anecdotes. Organized around six hurricanes that passed through the island with varying degrees of intensity between 1928 and 2017, The Hurricane Book documents the myriad ways in which colonialism particularly the relationship between the United States and the island has seeped into the lives of Puerto Ricans, affecting how they and their land recover from catastrophe, as well as how families and citizens are bound to one another.
