UGA Press Fall 2019 Catalog is Out

Our Fall 2019 catalog has landed! Click on the catalog cover or the link in the caption to take the whole thing for a spin. We’ve also highlighted a few titles below that we think exemplify the range and depth of the list. We hope you’ll agree.

  • Our latest collaboration with the Library of Congress and the lead title on the fall/winter list, Rosa Parks: In Her Own Words is a never-before seen collection of the civil rights icon’s personal writing and photographs. The book features one hundred color and black-and-white photographs from the Parks collection, many appearing in print for the first time, along with ephemera from the long life of a private person in the public eye. The accompanying exhibition opens at the Library of Congress on December 5, 2019.
  • NEW SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT: The Peabody Series in Media History. Television History, the Peabody Archive, and Cultural Memory is the first edited volume devoted to the Peabody Awards Collection, a unique repository of radio and TV programs submitted yearly since 1941 for consideration for the prestigious Peabody Awards.
  • POETRY: Christopher Kondrich’s National Poetry Series-winning Valuing asks how and why we place value and meaning on life’s intangibles. These deeply personal poems explore faith, love, ethics, and mortality from a variety of angles and through a variety of poetic forms as a means of questioning the origination of one’s own value system. In her Georgia Poetry Prize-winning collection Through a Small Ghost, Chelsea Dingman explores the difficult terrain of parenting after the loss of a stillborn child, navigating relationships through the trauma, and how trauma distorts our perceptions of reality.
  • NEW IN PAPERBACK: Jim Downs’s classic Stand by Me: The Forgotten History of Gay Liberation rewrote the history of gay life in the 1970s. Drawing on a vast trove of untapped records, Downs tells moving, revelatory stories of gay people who stood together to create a sense of community among people who felt alienated from mainstream American life.
