Weekly Roundup for 3/15/13



Every Friday, the Akashic team highlights industry news, reviews, and features from around the web. This week’s roundup comes to you from Akashic publicist Kate Bogden and intern Deanna Hoffmann.


Around the Web

A round of applause for The Women’s Prize for Fiction 2013 which includes Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, and Barbara Kingsolver!

An illecebrous link to 20 obsolete English words that should make a comeback

We were curious about this graphic novel that tackles H.I.V/AIDS in the South.

‘The Book Was Better’ gets a T-shirt. Also, show your literary pride wherever you are with more book themed Tee’s from Threadless (and support artists while you’re at it! Any artist can submit an idea to Threadless, get feedback from sitegoers, and the designs with the highest number of votes get printed and sold to the public).

Call for stories for the London Book Fair 2013! Akashic will be there!

What books Make You Feel Nostalgic? What books would you add to this list? Here at Akashic, we hope Seriously, Just Go To Sleep ends up on the list of the next generation!


Around the Office

We rounded up the Akashic office plants! What kind of plant do you keep on your desk?
