Inside Chase's Calendar of Events 2016
Holly McGuire, editor of Chase's Calendar of Events, spoke with Publishers Weekly about what it takes to compile the world's most comprehensive and authoritative guide to special days and celebrations, from Talk Like A Pirate Day to Ada Lovelace Day, which honors women in science. The venerable, 752-page guide will be published by Bernan Press in September.
Great Divide earns PW star
With water issues much in the news of late, TwoDot books is especially proud to present The Great Divide, by Stephen Grace and Jim Havey. As Publishers Weekly writes in its starred review, the book “investigates the precarious state of water in Colorado—who owns it and who is entitled to it—and the battles waged over its control… Grace possesses deep insight and a strong sense of place; this presentation, coupled with Havey’s remarkable photos and occasional archival images, is exceptional.” The fully illustrated book is a companion to a film of the same name, which is screening throughout the state.

Hiroshima book gets media spotlight
This week marks the 70th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as the publication of To Hell and Back: The Last Train from Hiroshima, by Charles Pellegrino. In its starred review, Kirkus called the book “horrifying, painful, and necessary reading.” The New York Times included the book in its Daily Briefing today, while last Sunday’s Wall Street Journal said: “The nuclear weapons of today make the ones detonated in 1945 look like firecrackers, and more and more countries possess them or threaten to do so. . . . The virtue of [this book] is the reminder of just how horrible nuclear weapons are.”
