It’s Earth Day and we want to share two of our most hard-hitting environmental titles with you.
In Empty Hands, Open Arms, Deni Béchard gives an eye-opening look into the struggle for preservation of the Bonobo apes in the Congo, while offering a startling glimpse of the country’s already ravaged ecosystem and the fight to save what’s left.

This April, we’re letting poetry take over our newsletter. As a sponsoring publisher of National Poetry Month, we want to take this opportunity to share with you a few poems that you can print out and keep with you on April 24th — Poem in Your Pocket Day. On that day, people throughout the United States select a poem, carry it with them, and share it with others throughout the day. You can also share your poem selection on Twitter by using the hashtag #pocketpoem. Poems from pockets are unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores. Become an ambassador for poetry!
