As the holidays draw near, we at Milkweed realize how lucky we are to be inundated by the gifts of incredible writers and artists who share their work with us every day. But gifts require giving! And that’s where you, dear readers and supporters, come in.
In 2003, Danielle Sosin made a temporary move to Duluth, Minnesota, to work on what would become her first novel, The Long-Shining Waters. After one season spent at the edge of Lake Superior, she knew she would never leave. Nearly ten years later the book was published, and the frigid, lethal, and wildly beautiful water of the big lake occupied its center.

Robin Wall Kimmerer—plant ecologist, mother, professor, and author of Braiding Sweetgrass—stopped by the Milkweed offices this week. After she made the rounds saying hello to individual staff members and dropping off a bag of cookies for us, we tucked into a small, cozy office, I flipped on the recorder, and she read an excerpt from her new book.
Here at Milkweed Editions, we know that you, dear reader, have some tough questions coming up. In the coming weeks you’ll be asked what you are thankful for, and then almost immediately after you’ve found an answer, you’ll be asking yourself, “What do I give someone to show my thanks?” Well, we’ve decided to answer all your questions in one easy blog.
