This month's Midwest Connection Picks

book coverThe End of the End of the Earth

Essays by Jonathan Franzen

In The End of the End of the Earth, which gathers essays and speeches written mostly in the past five years, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigor to the themes—both human and literary—that have long preoccupied him. Taken together, these essays trace the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature, and with some of the most important issues of our day.


book coverThe Collected Poems of Robert Bly
Robert Bly

Gathering more than sixty years of poetry, Collected Poems by Robert Bly showcases the brilliant career of a “great American transcendentalist” (New York Times). Presenting the full magnitude of Robert Bly’s body of work for the first time, Collected Poems is a fresh view of his lifelong achievement. From his imagistic debut, Silence in the Snowy Fields (1962), to his National Book Award-winning The Light Around the Body (1967), to his transcendent latest, Talking into the Ear of a Donkey (2011), Bly is a truth-teller and a fearless explorer of the human dilemma. Collected Poems makes clear why poets and lovers of poetry have long looked to Bly for emotional authenticity, moral authority, and artistic inspiration.

bookThe City of Broken Magic
Mirah Bolender

Five hundred years ago, magi created a weapon they couldn’t control. An infestation that ate magic—and anything else it came into contact with. Only an elite team of non-magical humans can defuse and dispose of infestations. Laura has stayed alive longer than most. Now, she’s the last—and only—sweeper standing between the city and a massive infestation. 

bookThe Mukluk Ball
Katharine Johnson, illustrated by Alicia Schwab

Karhu the bear wants to go to the Mukluk Ball. He will need mukluks, dance moves, and someone to wake him up from hibernation. Will the Ball live up to Karhu's dreams? The music and fellowship filling Finn Town Hall might just make for the best night of his life.
