Sapphic Book News, Leigh Hays, 17 Books on Sale, Caturday, and More!

SapphFic Mischief Saturday Morning Graphic
Happy Pride!

Saturdays are when we round up all the sapphic book news from the previous week into one convenient location. Think of it as your personal queer reading directory! After all, we know the weekend is when so many of us are able to unwind for a minute and want to get lost in a good wlw book. What could be better?

It’s the first weekend of June and luckily the temperatures have dropped from the low 90s to 60s. TB melts when it gets above 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Miranda hates when it gets hot because she has to listen to TB complains incessantly. At least it’s not cold. Both of them are tired of being cold because they refuse to kick on the heat after April 1. If you have Pride plans this weekend, we hope you have lovely weather for the festivities.

Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last week’s mystery, 45% of you were right. TB went for a stroll on Battle Road. 41% of you wondered if TB lost her way on the road, even though it’s clearly marked. Actually, TB wandered off the trail and there was a moment of panic before TB followed a dog who’s owner was calling it. TB doesn’t want to think what that means.

Now for the new challenge.

Last weekend, TB & Miranda went to visit a historic home of a famous American woman. They took the sapphic book Who I Believe by Jamey Moody.

Here are some clues about the woman.

1. She was born on December 10, 1830 to a prominent family in Amherst, Massachusetts.

2. It’s thought a male friend introduced her to the writings of William Wordsworth and gave her a book of poems by Ralph Waldo Emerson, which had quite an impact. This friend believed our mystery woman could be a great poet.

3. Her best friend was Susan Gilbert, who happened to be our mystery woman’s sister-in-law. It’s believed the two were romantically involved.

4. She spent most of her time at home and neighbors became entranced by the woman in a white dress in the window.

5. During her lifetime, only 10 poems were published despite the fact she wrote roughly 1,800.

6. Her poetry is known for it’s unique style including unconventional punctuation and capitalizion, short lines, and lack of titles.

Here are some photos of the home, including some snaps of Who I Believe by Jamey Moody on the grounds. While TB could take photos inside the home, she couldn’t bring her bag with the book.

Time to vote on the mystery poet.

Which author lived in the home TB & Miranda visited?

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!
