We had a great time selling books and meeting authors at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in Atlanta.
We were thrilled that Thomas Miller Klubock’s La Frontera: Forests and Ecological Conflict in Chile’s Frontier Territory won a third prize at the meeting, the Bolton-Johnson prize for the best book in English on Latin American history, given by the Conference on Latin American History. Klubock’s book had already won the Bryce-Wood award from the Latin American Studies Association and the 2015 Charles Weyerhaeuser award for the best book published on forest and conservation history, given by the Forest History Society. Congratulations to him on this bounty of awards!
Barbara Weinstein’s new book The Color of Modernity: São Paulo and the Making of Race and Nation in Brazil was the subject of a special roundtable discussion at the meeting and a steady seller in the booth.
Marcia Chatelain with her book South Side Girls: Growing up in the Great Migration. We’re excited that Chatelain’s book is the April pick for the national Go On Girl! book club.
Daryle Williams, one of the co-editors of The Rio de Janeiro Reader, which will be a great book for both courses and those lucky enough to be traveling to this summer’s Olympic Games.
Mary Ann Mahony, the editor and translator for Walter Fraga’s The Crossroads of Freedom: Slaves and Freed People in Bahia, Brazil, 1870-1910, stopped by the booth to pose with the page proofs of their book. Look for it in April, too.
