James shares a very important message in this video.
Literati Press believes strongly that sharing stories is what makes us human, and that sharing stories from marginalized and vulnerable communities broadens and strengthens humanity.
Book banning, limiting access to information, and firing teachers are the tools of totalitarian regimes throughout history.
We've always carried a wide selection of banned authors, from Harper Lee to Mikhail Bulgakov, Tony Morrison to Neil Gaiman, Elizabeth Acevedo to Salman Rushdie, George Orwell to Margaret Atwood. We will continue to do so.

Teens can visit the Brooklyn Public Library website (here: https://www.bklynlibrary.org/books-unbanned) to get a library card for access to books that may not be available locally (we've also got a QR code link posted prominently in the shop).

"There's more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches."
-Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Fight censorship.
Read banned books. Share banned books.
Right now bans seek to silence and punish those who need books most–those who are most marginalized, most isolated, most in need of discovering a diversity of ideas and ways of being.
Seek out books by authors who are radically different than you.
Seek out books by authors from other cultures, countries, continents.

2. The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame's stories of the misadventures of the mad Toad and his friends Ratty and Mole, in a beautiful edition.
3. Creepy Cat, the spooky and adorable first volume in Thai-creator Cotton Valent's YA comic series.

Four things from the Bookshop for today (clockwise from top left):
1. The Sagas of the Icelanders, Considered among the greatest examples of European medieval literature, the sagas are the stories and histories of the Vikings and Nordic people from the 9th to 11th century.
2. American Sonnets for my Past and Future Assassin, by MacArthur Genius Grant and National Book Award winner Terrence Hayes, a arresting work of poetry that deals with race, religion, and masculinity in our current moment.
3. New Oklahoma stickers from .but.ok! My favorite is the Red Dirt Crawdad Rodeo. What's yours?
4. The Zaireeka 331⁄3 book by Mark Richardson, an investigation of the Flaming Lips most ambitious project: and four discs, each with their own stereo tracks, intended to be played simultaneously, or at least nearly- part of the experimental nature of the album comes from the slight variations that occur each time it is played.
We're open at 3010 Paseo until 7 today, Sunday, 10-6 Mondays, 9-7 Tuesday thru Thursday, and 9-8 Friday & Saturday.

It's Friday and time for another poetry video, this time from the magnificent Kara Bullen, reading her poem "Finger Skin"! Big props to and Literati Press Comics & Novels for their time, talent and support! Enjoy!!!

Pilot Comic “Monster Slayer | Legends” Cover art & first 5 panels.
Created with IPad Pro with Procreate
11” x 17”
2022

The secret is revealed! I found out last Friday that my art was accepted for an exhibit called “Comics As Art” which will be at Literati Press Comics & Novels in the Paseo for the month of September. I started the comic back in July, and actually finished what was needed for the show while I was in New Mexico and submitted it. This is pilot and I need to finish the rest of the short story panels, and then maybe, just maybe I can get a published comic in the works… It is set during the 1860s on the traditional Navajo lands. A mysterious figure has come to help find out why people are going missing near a canyon.

I had help getting them printed by The Arts at 317 in Shawnee, and they turned out great! Finished framing them at home and dropped them off yesterday at Literati. The exhibit opens tomorrow night for the Paseo First Friday art walk. I’m busy this weekend but if you go be sure to take a pic and tag me! The Literati Press Bookshop is so cool, they have lots of books and gifts for everyone. All of these comic panels are for sale, and I did sign and date them so if you would like a one of kind piece and a first type of art form from yours truly you can purchase them there!


So I’m working on a thing…🤫… and it’s Top Secret. Only Literati Press and The Arts at 317 know what I’m doing, and the select few individuals that I have told. All will be revealed soon…

“It’s a secret to everybody”

Stay tuned!


Ruth, who works the Literati Press Comics & Novels bookshop on Fridays and is an extraordinary artist, is raising money for a residency (and producing the art that comes out of that residency)!
Help her out and get some of her marvelous art here:
