Finished Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars earlier this week and all I can say is: 😍. It's a little hard to get a hold of, but definitely go to the @metonymypress website and pick up the $10 pdf. You will not regret it. Excellent pick this month, @oursharedshelf ! .

“Stories are compasses and architecture; we navigate by them, we build our sanctuaries and our prisons out of them, and to be without a story is to be lost in the vastness of a world that spreads in all directions like arctic tundra or sea ice.” I’m thoroughly devouring this book. It’s so exquisitely written. .

#bookoftheday Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars - A dangerous trans girl's confabulous memoir foi a indicação do book clube #oursharedshelf para Março e Abril é uma obra de ficção em que uma garota trans conta a sua história nesse mundo de descobertas e crueldade. Não é possível saber o quanto da sua própria vida a autora, uma mulher trans chino-canadense, trouxe, pois ela mesmo declara que esse livro veio para quebrar o paradigma de que a única história que uma pessoa transgênera tem para contar é a sua autobiografia, não enxergando a capacidade criativa inerente. Dessa forma ela questiona os padrões e introduz uma estética completamente genial para contar essa história, mesclando tensão, sofrimento, elementos fantásticos e poesias. O livro flerta com o realismo fantástico, aqui vemos elementos de fantasia como integrantes orgânicos da trama, sendo que a própria narradora utiliza o realismo fantástico para contar passagens marcadas por sofrimento e perda.l, fazendo uso delas como alegorias e metáforas. A narradora também se põe em cheque logo no início da narrativa se apresentando como uma grande mentirosa, porém, a sua linguagem é tão honesta que nos torna crível uma cena com sereias e uma despedida fraternal. Apesar de todos os elementos fantásticos esse é um livro denso, cruel e poético, sobre violência e aceitação. É um livro que discute a transgeneridade, abuso sexual, traumas, violência, preconceito, sororidade, amor próprio e muitas outras ideias. É uma obra que dificilmente eu teria acesso pois é de uma pequena editora lgbt em Montreal e que normalmente nunca chegaria em minhas mãos. No fim de tudo fica a gratidão por ter tido essa experiência. Nota ⭐⭐ ⭐⭐⭐ #fiercefemmesandnotoriousliara #kaichengthom #menymypress #oursharedshelfbrazil #samanthagarritano

Good news: My article was selected and published in Ghana Meteorological Agency's premier magazine to mark this year's World Meteorological Day celebration.

Here's an excerpt:

The Sun, the Earth and the Weather

We have all heard the simile “as unpredictable as the weather”; however, long before the advent of the tools used by meteorologists to predict the changes in weather patterns, there was a time when our folks could fairly predict the weather by the sun’s heat during the day, by observing animal behaviours, or by observing the sky, the clouds, the moon and the stars, the air and the wind.
•••
There was a time when our forests were thick and green, and we were blessed with clean seas, rivers, lakes, lagoons, streams and beaches. There was a time when the soil was fertile and our farmers could rely on the weather to tell when to prepare the land for planting. In those times, our farmers reaped bountiful harvests without the excessive use of fertilizers and hence we savoured organic food produce. There was also a time when we had beautiful weather, like the concurrent showers and sunshine children adored.
•••
Whenever that occurred, children came out to play, happily singing to the good old song:
It’s raining and yet the sun is shining;
Ghosts are off to the market. (A translation from the Ghanaian parlance Fante)
•••
Those were many, many years ago. Now things have changed. The trees that once gave shade to the streams have been cut down. Most of our streams have dried up. Our water bodies have been polluted and that is threatening aquatic life. Our beaches are dotted with waste materials. Fumes from vehicles and emission of harmful gases by industries have polluted the air. Mining is destroying arable lands and depleting the country’s natural resources.
•••
And to make matters worse, the world is experiencing accursed weather conditions. What do the experts term that? Ah yes, climate change! Experts say human activities, notably the emission of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels, have been the dominant cause of climate change...

Eng Book Fairy huet de moien e Buch an der Buerg verstoppt bei engem klengen Buer. Fir Leit aus der Géigend dierft et net schwéier sinn ze wëssen wou d'Buch sech grad sonnt 🌞📚 About the book:
"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will be busier still.

By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left behind there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordian-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found.

But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down.

About World of Books:

This amazing secondhand book seller has helped us to celebrate our second birthday on International Women's Day by donating a tonne of books to us.

In Luxembourg, the books arrived after the big day but we are no less happy and excited to spread the love of reading and hide these fabulous books donated by the lovely people at @worldofbooksltd 📚💜 #ibelieveinbookfairies #iwdbookfairies #sharetheloveofreading #oursharedshelf #internationalwomensday #worldofbooks #iwd2019 #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #instabooks #büchergram #thebookthief #markuszusak #lovebooks #booksbooksbooks #readingisimportant #readingisawesome #luxembourg

One of the great thing about literature is that its open to each reader's unique interpretations and opinions. And that can lead to some unpopular opinions, but that's totally fine! .

One of my unpopular book opinions: I'm not a Hemingway fan!

Taking her love of books to another level by writing her own! This little beauty has created her own fantasy world and is 100 pages in. She has been working on this for quite a while, researching folklore and myths to help create a backstory for her characters. I have to say, it’s amazing! I absolutely love her focus and commitment. She is taking her time and I love seeing her in the zone! And when she focuses she gets this little divet in her forehead that I 🥰! P.s. one of her biggest role models is @emmawatson . She said that if she can get her book published, her next dream would be to meet her longtime girl hero! ☺️🙌🏽#girlswithdreams #nothingisimpossible

Currently reading a very different kind of transgender memoir: “fish means being able to walk in the daylight, as far as you please from the Street of Miracles, without fear of being chased and beat up by somebody or arrested by the cops. It means being able to get a job, one outside of selling the glamour and flesh men come looking to buy in secret in the night. It means maybe getting a boyfriend, sweet and handsome and uncomplicated, wealthy enough to take you to the highest towers of the City. That’s what fish means, my dear... and I want that for you.”
