Oranges helped create the Golden Dream of Southern California from the time Eliza and Luther Tibbetts planted two Washington Navel Oranges in their Riverside yard in 1873. Over a century later, Inlandia Literary Laureate Gayle Brandeis has assembled a juicy collection of poetry, prose and recipes that explore, celebrate and memorialize our region's powerful citrus heritage. Together, these voices create a chorus singing of sweetness and loss, deep roots and seismic change. You will never look at an orange the same way again. Take a bite of Orangelandia!

Winner of the Backwaters Prize in Poetry, Jennifer K. Sweeney's Foxlogic, Fireweed follows a lyrical sequence of five physical and emotional terrains--floodplain, coast, desert, suburbia, and mesa--braiding themes of nature, domesticity, isolation, and human relationships. These are poems of the earth's wild heart, its searing mysteries, its hollows, and its species, poems of the complex domestic space, of before and after motherhood, gun terror, the election, of dislocation and home, and of how we circle toward and away from our centers. Sweeney is not afraid to take up the domestic and inner lives of women, a nuanced relationship with the natural world that feels female or even maternal, or a duty to keeping alive poetry's big questions of transcendence, revelation, awe, and deep presence in the ordinary.

Orange Lady is a poetry collection that recounts the author's experience as an immigrant growing up in South Central Los Angeles, where her family sold oranges on the street in order to survive. In adulthood, Ms. Ayón explores different facets of grief from not belonging in certain spaces, longing for a country she left long ago, and the loss of her father. The title itself stems from a moment when she was young, and a classmate called her, "Orange Lady" in front of the whole school after seeing her selling oranges. Although that moment initially caused her immense shame, it later motivated her to become more than her circumstances. These poems depict a journey that begins with recollections of being a street vendor to fading memories of Mexico and South Central Los Angeles, to reflections about a daughter's relationship with her father. They delve into issues of poverty, cultural identity, and the many hardships faced by the immigrant community.
