Meredith Tax Writes Op-Ed in New York Times About “When Women Fight ISIS”; Brain Pickings and New York Times Book Review Run with The Wolves of Currumpaw
 
When the Islamic State attacked the Yazidi people in Iraq, little help was offered in terms of international aid. Instead, the Yazidis were ushered to safety by Kurdish and Turkish guerrillas, who are frequently women. Meredith Tax shined light on the crucial roles these often unsung heroes play in an op-ed in the August 20 issue of the New York Times. “Female guerrillas have fought in national liberation struggles in places from China to Vietnam, Cuba to Nicaragua, Mozambique, Angola, Iran and the Palestinian territories,” Tax said in the Times. Tax’s latest book, A Road Unforeseen: Women Fight the Islamic State, further depicts the lives of these women. The book will be excerpted on the American Scholar website on August 29, and Tax will be interviewed by Leonard Lopate on his NPR show on WNYC-FM in New York City soon. More praise for Tax’s timely work comes from Publishers Weekly, in a review published August 15, and ROAR Magazine, which called A Road Unforeseen “an essential resource for years to come” in another August 15 review.
 
This Sunday’s New York Times Book Review will take a journey to the Wild Wild West as it takes an in-depth look at William Grill’s The Wolves of Currumpaw. After Grill’s first book, Shackleton’s Journey, won the Kate Greenaway Medal for Children’s Illustration, readers young and old fell in love with Grill’s trademark art style, and the pictures within The Wolves of Currumpaw will not disappoint; the Wall Street Journal called the illustrations “breathtaking” in a review published on July 8. The Wolves of Currumpaw is based on a story originally written by Ernest Thompson Seton, who went on to help found the Boy Scout, and Grill's retelling is as much about content as it is about form. A review on Brainpickings on August 18 praised in particular how Grill’s “soft, sensitive illustrations” contrasted with the heartbreaking brutality of the true story of Currumpaw, where wolves were hunted en masse for sport.
