NEWS AND REVIEWS
Cora Du Bois by Susan C. Seymour
Praise from the Los Angeles Book Review:
“Seymour’s book reads like a detective novel in parts, a history in others, as she follows the adventurous life of a ‘distant observer of mankind.’ . . . Susan Seymour makes clear the irony of a woman with principle—a patriotic American who attempted to see beyond the present — being first rewarded by her country and then defamed by its intelligence agencies for doing so. There are important contemporary lessons here. If we don’t know where we have come from, we can’t see where our country is heading, for good or for worse, as is made clear in this totally absorbing book.”
My Wife Wants You to Know I’m Happily Married by Joey Franklin
Compliments from Kirkus:
“In this warm, engaging collection of 14 personal essays, the author offers a masculine take on love, commitment, parenthood, and living contentedly in an imperfect world . . . Franklin’s focus on daily life makes his book down to earth and entirely accessible. Taken together, his essays reveal the ways men can not only survive their own socialization, but also take quiet pleasure and pride in being male. A candid, subtly profound collection.”

Author Q&A with the University of Washington:
“We often think of equality as something that needs to be regulated through laws and policies, and certainly those are important and necessary. But just as powerful are all of the unspoken assumptions that order the workplace—assumptions about who the ideal worker is and what the work environment should look like. Those assumptions have the power to define work in unequal ways. On the other hand, once those assumptions are recognized, we also have the power to work to organize workplaces in ways that empower workers and equal employment opportunities.”
