Burma and Western Ignorance/ and the Value of Women’s Presses

Self’s article “Burma and Western Ignorance” is on-line now, at Women=Books, the blog of the most excellent Women’s Review of Books.

Why not consider a gift subscription for the holidays? This is such a fab publication, dear blog readers, and not just because it’s for and about women, but because it’s thought-provoking! And cutting edge!

And while you’re at it, why not consider buying a book from Calyx Press?  Because they are one of the oldest women’s presses in the country, and because they have discovered the following women writers, at a very early stage in their careers, and continue to support women, valiantly, from their tiny office in Corvallis, Oregon :

Chitra Divakaruni  *  Jean Hegland  *  Barbara Kingsolver  *  Ursula K. Le Guin

Not to mention the fact that, self still gets royalty checks for Ginseng and Other Tales From Manila, self’s first book, which Calyx published almost 20 years ago. Truthfully, if not for that book, self doesn’t know what would have happened to her. To her life, she means.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
