📚 Remember how I said my hammock was my favorite reading spot? Here’s a flashback to me reading SIX OF CROWS in my hammock a few weeks ago. The purple thing is @the_book_seat, which has changed my reading life. I have chronic pain and sometimes my wrists hurt too much to hold up a heavy book like this one. The Book Seat does it for me. (This isn’t a paid endorsement or ad. My husband got me the Book Seat for my birthday last year. I just really love it.)
[A copy of SIX OF CROWS is open to Chapter 30, a Jesper chapter. Green trees are in the background. The edge of a purple cushion is in the foreground.]

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
