Did you know it is #NationalLobsterDay today? 🦞 Sure, you'll see a lot of recipes for lobster rolls and seafood pastas today, but we wanted to give you a cocktail to enjoy alongside your meal, hailing from the land of lobsters—Maine!🍸

​In Brian Bartels' THE UNITED STATES OF COCKTAILS, he puts a spotlight on Andrew Volk and his wife, Briana, who have been nestled in the downtown Portland community for a healthy amount of time. If there is a craft cocktail movement happening in that area, it can be attributed to the Volks’ efforts at The Portland Hunt & Alpine Club and Little Giant, and they are both must-visit spots. This recipe, White Noise, is a great large-format cocktail for anyone hosting a party, as it’s easy to build, refreshing, and low in alcohol.

​1½ ounces Cocchi Americano
1 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
2 ounces club soda
Garnish: grapefruit twist

​Pour the Cocchi Americano and elderflower liqueur into a chilled double Old Fashioned glass. Fill the glass with ice, and then top with the club soda. Stir gently to combine. Hold the grapefruit twist with both hands between your thumb and forefinger. Twist the peel over the cocktail. Rub the peel on the rim of the glass for extra flavor. Drop the peel into the glass.

Among the extensive writing available about the history of ancient Greece, there is precious little about the city-state of Thebes. At one point the most powerful city in ancient Greece, Thebes has been long overshadowed by its better-known rivals, Athens and Sparta. In THEBES: THE FORGOTTEN CITY OF ANCIENT GREECE, acclaimed classicist and historian Paul Cartledge brings the city vividly to life and argues that it is central to our understanding of the ancient Greeks’ achievements—whether politically or culturally—and thus to the wider politico-cultural traditions of western Europe, the Americas, and indeed the world. https://bit.ly/2RxVGcw

The American South is a place steeped in history and tradition. We think of sweet tea, thick drawls, and even thicker summer air. It is also a place with a fraught history, complicated social norms, and dated perspectives. Yet among the makers and artists of the South, there is a powerful movement afoot.

Alyssa Rosenheck shines a much-needed spotlight on a burgeoning community of people who are taking what’s beloved, inherent, and honored in the South and making it their own. THE NEW SOUTHERN STYLE tours more than 30 homes and includes interviews with the designers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs who are reinventing Southern design and culture. This beautifully illustrated book is sure to inspire the home and soul. On sale tomorrow!

This day is just calling you to settle in with an engaging book. 📚

In GUANTANÁMO VOICES, journalist @sarahmirk and her team of diverse, talented graphic novel artists tell the stories of ten people whose lives have been shaped and affected by the prison, including former prisoners, lawyers, social workers, and service members. This collection of illustrated interviews explores the history of Guantánamo and the world post-9/11, presenting this complicated partisan issue through a new lens.

You can feel it in the air—fall is coming! 🍂 Are you getting the itch to take up a new hobby? 🧶

Knitting can seem highly daunting: you need needles (but what size?), yarn (but what weight?), and a pattern (but what kind?), and very quickly knitting can start to resemble another language, tricky to navigate and even harder to master. Expert knitter Alanna Okun's KNIT A HAT teaches you everything you need to know about the previously scary craft: the needles you’ll need, the yarn to use, and tried-and-true techniques to get you started, keep you going, and help you wrap everything up.

“I don’t have money. I don’t have power. But I do have blood to give.” 🩸

In GOOD BLOOD, bestselling writer Julian Guthrie tells the gripping tale of the race to cure a horrible blood disease known as Rh disease that stalked families and caused a mother’s immune system to attack her own unborn child. The story is anchored by two very different men on two continents: Dr. John Gorman in New York, who would land on a brilliant yet contrarian idea, and an unassuming Australian whose almost magical blood—and his unyielding devotion to donating it—would save millions of lives.

Boozy ice pops + a long summer weekend = a match made in heaven! Get What's Gaby Cooking's recipe for sparkling blackberry lemonade pops from her newest book EAT WHAT YOU WANT below ⬇️

​All you need is 3 cups (720 ml) of lemonade, 10 blackberries and ½ cup (120 ml) of prosecco!

​In a blender, puree the lemonade and blackberries until smooth. Add the prosecco and stir to combine.

​Divide the mixture among paper cups or an ice pop mold. Place a colorful straw or wooden pop stick into each cup.

​Place a small piece of tinfoil over each cup, cutting out a small hole for the straw. This will ensure that the straw stays straight while freezing. Transfer to a freezer and freeze the pops until firm, about 8 hours.

Sure, you may have heard of a beurre blanc (whisking butter into white wine to make a sauce) but have you ever heard of a beurre tomate? 😲🍅 You save the flavorful liquid that drains out of a salted in-season tomato and then emulsify it with butter. Combine it with the tried-and-true combination of garlic and basil and you have a sublime pasta dish!

On Women's Equality Day, we think back to the powerful women who fought for women’s right to vote. But this was only the beginning. In the years to follow, there was much more work to be done, and there is still work to do.

Scroll through to read a passage from DRAWING THE VOTE that highlights the years leading up to the adoption of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

We all need to exercise our right to vote this November. Head to abramsbooks.com/drawingthevote to register to vote, check your registration status, and to request a mail-in ballot.

Sewing is a time-honored tradition that’s functional and purposeful, and is the foundation for almost all clothing and accessories as we know them today. While most books dedicated to this topic focus on machine-sewing, there’s a simpler side to this craft, and learning the techniques and skills needed to hand-sew open up a wide world of possibilities from hemming your own garments to sewing on buttons to repairing beloved closet items to making your own new pieces, like the fold-over clutch featured here.
.
SEW A BAG will introduce readers to hand-sewing, focusing on the basics and the techniques most applicable to sewing that can then be extended to a wide variety of projects in the future.

The story of Nat Turner and his slave rebellion—which began on August 21, 1831, in Southampton County, Virginia—is known among school children and adults. To some he is a hero, a symbol of Black resistance and a precursor to the civil rights movement; to others he is monster—a murderer whose name is never uttered. In NAT TURNER, acclaimed author and illustrator Kyle Baker depicts the evils of slavery in this moving and historically accurate story of Nat Turner’s slave rebellion. Told nearly wordlessly, every image resonates with the reader as the brutal story unfolds.
