Less than a month to go till the launch of Minneapolis writer Carol Dines' latest book. The short story collection, This Distance We Call Love, officially launches during a free, live-stream event on the Magers & Quinn Facebook Page or YouTube channel on Wednesday, August 4 at 6 p.m. Central time.
Here is a link to the first media placement for the book: a mention about the upcoming title appears in the July 6th edition of the Rochester Post Bulletin.
Blending humor and insight, the 13 stories in this collection explore interwoven themes of connection and disconnection in our most intimate relationships, a topic pertinent to our pandemic lives. Told through the voices of mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, sisters and friends, the loosely linked stories have been likened to Lorrie Moore and Alice Munroe in their narrative style.
Set in Minnesota, Italy, and Mexico, the collection delves deep into our changing world, revealing how the internet, climate change, sexual violence, aging and work impact our families, marriages, and friendships. While some relationships fall apart, others remain entrenched in old patterns, grappling with notions of self and duty. Altogether, the stories probe our most meaningful relationships, asking how love survives our changing world.
Carol Dines is the author of fiction for adults and young adults, and is a recipient of the Judy Blume award as well as a recipient of Minnesota and Wisconsin State Artist Fellowships. Dines received a BA from Stanford University and an MA in English from Colorado State University. She has taught writing to all ages at universities, colleges, and public schools in Colorado, Florida, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Jack Zipes, and their standard poodle.

A new publishing company that is dedicated to making sure diverse voices are heard launches this week, and the media campaign to promote it is underway. RMA Publicity has secured stories about Diverse Voices Press in the Star Tribune (June 29), St. Cloud Times (June 23) and in the Pioneer Press (June 20).
Diverse Voices Press officially launched on June 26 at the Barnes and Noble in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The company's first book is “Waa Midabkee Xijaabkaygu?” which is the Somali version of Hudda Ibrahim’s What Color is My Hijab. The English version came out last year, but due to the pandemic was never officially launched. The June 26 event served as the official launch event for both versions of the book, as well as the publishing company.
What Color is My Hijab? is a beautifully illustrated children’s book featuring women from all different professions, including doctors and teachers, artists and politicians, wearing their very colorful hijabs, and a variety of clothing. Ibrahim says the variety is intentional as it illustrates that like all Americans, Muslim women come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and abilities.
