It’s Friday and it feels like the first Friday of Spring here in North Dakotaland. The temperatures have soared into the mid-40, the snow is mostly melted, and the ground has that spongy, post-frozen feeling to it. For a semester and a year that seemed to be a bit relentless, an early Spring seems like a great act of mercy.
This week has been pretty exciting. First, The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota published Deserted Villages: Perspectives from the Eastern Mediterranean edited by Rebecca M. Seifried and Deborah E. Brown Stewart. Download a copy here!
I also sent issued North Dakota Quarterly issue 88.1/2 to our publishing partners at University of Nebraska Press. You can check out the table of contents here. We’re excited to announce that UNP has also made some discounts on subscriptions and back issues available during this years AWP meeting. Check them out here.
