We had a great time attending the American Anthropological Association’s Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. this past weekend! It is always a pleasure to participate in the hustle and bustle of a busy meeting, and to take the opportunity to mingle with our authors.
At this meeting we were pleased to announce that Gilberto Rosas’ Barrio Libre (2012) won the 2014 ALLA Book Award from the Association for Latina and Latino Anthropologists Section of the AAA.
Anne Allison’s Precarious Japan (2013) also received an honorable mention for the 2014 AES Senior Book Prize from the American Ethnological Society.
Many authors stopped by our booth to say hello!
Candis Callison stopped by to see her brand-new book, How Climate Change Comes to Matter.
Esther Newton with the new paperback edition of her book, Cherry Grove, Fire Island.
Ana Maria Ochoa Gautier poses with her book, Aurality, and our editorial director, Ken Wissoker.
We snapped a picture with Ruth Behar and her book, Traveling Heavy.
Here is Denise Brennan, author of Life Interrupted.
