Beat the summer heat and join us from the comfort of your own home or office for our Water Is Life Summer Reading Zoom Series! We are excited to feature two local Alabama authors and one Southeastern author as we discuss their newly published books. The topics range from restoring rivers to the poetry of sustainable home building to the muddy story of environmental injustice in the Mississippi River Delta. Head out to your favorite local bookstore or your local library and pick up a copy or purchase from our favorite Thank You Books in Birmingham!  We can’t wait to see you on Zoom!


Water is Life: Glass Cabin with James and Tina Mozelle Braziel

GLASS CABIN chronicles the thirteen years Tina Mozelle Braziel and James Braziel spent building their home out of secondhand tin, tornado-snapped power poles, and church glass on a ridge in rural Alabama. Their alternating voices support one another like parts of their cabin—every board needs its nail, every window needs its frame. These poems explore the work it takes to measure cuts for stairs, to haul water — one ton at a time — up the side of the mountain, and to write. It reads as a meditation on hope, on frustration, and on people’s places in the wilder parts of the world.
