Anna North does not disappoint; she is as fantastic as her novel Outlawed. It is apparently obvious that this woman was meant to inspire and educate us through the power of words. For that, we say, “thank you.” Make sure you snag a copy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble or your favorite local book retailer (We love Buxton Books in Charleston, SC and Lumeria in Jackson, MS). To learn more about Anna North, author and journalist, check out her website and articles: http://www.annanorth.net/ and https://www.vox.com/authors/anna-north. You can also follow her on Instagram @annanorthbooks.
Special thanks to Rachel Willey (Instagram @redithw) for creating maybe the sexiest book cover of all time.
Want to check out Krazy Kat Comic by George Herriman (NOLA native whoop whoop)? Here you go: https://www.comicstriplibrary.org/display/17. Also, really interesting article from The New Yorker on expounding on the comic’s discussion of gender fluidity: https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-gender-fluidity-of-krazy-kat
Speaking of cats, RIP Miracle Cat. Thank you for gracing the gram.
