The Book: THE CAMPOUT COOKBOOK by Marnie Hanel & Jen Stevenson
"This delightful little collection of campfire-ready recipes and campsite best practices will be your go-to trail buddy after a long day in the great outdoors --or over a firepit in your backyard. I, for one, would certainly enjoy some Middle-of-Nowhere Mac 'n' Beer Cheese (p. 118) or any of the sophisticated s'more upgrades found on the gooey p. 138-139 spread (s'mamoas? yes please!). And the tips for getting your morning dose of caffeine campside (p. 181)? A gift from the wilderness gods! Honestly, though, I'd pick up this book for the Fortifications chapter alone -- enjoy Furtive Flask Cocktails (p. 160-161), Tentside Toddies (p. 170-171), and Big Batch Bloody Marys (p. 163), complete with pine cone garnish, under the stars and away from the hustling, bustling world at large. Even if we're all at home, at least we'll know how to cook an egg on a stick (p. 147). --Lainie Formby, Adult Frontlist Buyer Tattered Cover Book Store
The Music: Lizzo Coconut Oil
Melissa Viviane Jefferson, also known as Lizzo has become a powerhouse in the music industry over the last year. But this is far from the beginning of her career. In 2016 she released Coconut Oil as a follow up to her second full length album Big Grrrl Small World. If you haven’t listened to Lizzo yet, you should start here. Coconut Oil is full of body positivity, the importance of self-love and a whole lot of Prince influences. You can dance, sing in the car or have a moment to yourself all in these 6 songs. Lizzo says it best, “I thought I needed to run and find somebody to love, but all I needed was some coconut oil” -- Anna Lathem, Director of Marketing and Promotions at Twist & Shout Records
Coconut bark - 62% dark chocolate with fresh toasted coconut
The Book: HOW MUCH OF THESE HILLS IS GOLD by Pam C Zhang
"With this debut, C Pam Zhang demonstrates the sweeping narrative reach of Rebecca Makkai or Kamila Shamsie and the microscopic attention of a child playing pick-up sticks. The land and the story are odysseys, both, but the characters ache of precision. Zhang's writing feels brilliantly ambidextrous for the way that it uses third person to simultaneously create the varied hauntings of two siblings. Lucy and Sam travel many of the same Gold Rush paths together, but they filter the world vastly differently through their experiences of their own genders-- Lucy through the girlhood she was raised to embody and Sam through the boyhood Sam has always longed for. About luck and the soreness of desire, about history and folklore, this novel will make Zhang known immediately for her huge ambition and for her unwavering care." -- Afton Montgomery, Adult Book Buyer at Tattered Cover Book Store
"How Much of These Hills is Gold is a blazing new addition to the mythic literature of the west, and should sit right beside Lonesome Dove on anyone’s shelf. As Lucy and Sam navigate the promise and curse of the Gold Rush, Zhang shines a light on a story of the west that is too often written out of history. Full of adventure and exquisitely crafted, this is a truly unforgettable debut." -- Bethany Strout, Director of Buying at Tattered Cover Book Store
The Music: Drive-By Truckers The Unraveling
The Drive-By Truckers are one of the finest bands ever to emerge from the American South, a melding of classic rock structure and form with punk rock's rawness and class-consciousness. Their latest album, the presciently-titled The Unraveling, finds the band keeping at the forefront the political engagement that has run like a thread through their entire catalog. Lead songwriters Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, two of the best and most consistent songwriters in rock music over the last 20 years, channel their energies into a set of thoughtful and rocking songs that confront our daily reality head-on with titles like "21st Century USA," "Babies in Cages," and the terrific "Thoughts and Prayers." – Patrick Brown, General Manager at Twist & Shout Records
