On New Stands Now

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert! Mango Mama and her lovely book club buddies are showcased in the current issue of O Home. I’ll admit, I’m buggin’ a bit, appearing in the same publication as the Divine Miss O, but more importantly, I hope folks will check out the book featured with our story, What is the What by David Eggers, because it’s an incredible story and all proceeds go to aiding the Sudanese in America and Sudan through the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation.

So check out the Fall 2008 issue of O Home, and our feature, A Novel Affair, and be sure to let me know if you can figure out which one of us is me--- Mango Mama!

I will definitely go cop this issue - how wonderful! I'll add the book to my list of must reads. My reading has slacked off, and I've been looking for good reads to help get me back into the groove. As opposed to watching marathons of "First 48" on A&E. I don't know what my fascination with that show is . . .

Mango Mama said...

Girl, I understand. I like the morbid stuff myself. I can't get enough of Snapped, and it sort of freaks out Loverman.

I'm also happy to hear you're safe and sound after this weekend's storm. Be well!

Congratulations! I would love to see a list of the books your book club has read in the past year.

I'll check out this issue of O Home!

Nerd Girl said...

I'm back. Do you have a short curly 'fro??

Mango Mama said...

Jillybean, I do have the list of our books. I'll post them to the blog is a day or two. Hope all is well on your end.

Rha, Good to hear from you--- now get to posting. I miss reading you're stuff. Give the family my best.

Nerd Girl, You found me!

Mango Mama,

You look great! I kept looking for the goldilocks (minus the locks) when I looked at the magazine. I love your new look! We've got to get our friend, the Crone, on the eastcoast and get together!

Mango Mama said...

Jillybean, I'm all for it. Let's do a full-court press on our girl.

The Pasture

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;

I'll only stop to rake the leaves away

(And wait to watch the water clear, I may);

I Shan't be gone long.--- You come too.


I'm going out to fetch the little calf

That's standing by the mother. It's so young

It totters when she licks it with her tongue.

I shan't be gone long.--- You come too.
