Posted by: Laurie Hertzel under Book news, E-books, Local publishers Updated: February 13, 2013 - 6:36 PM

  MHS Express, a new digital imprint at the Minnesota Historical Society Press, features short-form pieces from a variety of places: new, unpublished essays; excerpts from upcoming titles; chapters and essays from older MHS books.

 

New titles include pieces by Ka Vang, Annette Atkins, and Will Weaver. Remember the hearbreaking movie, "Sweet Land"? It was an adaptation of one of Weaver's short stories, "A Gravestone Made of Wheat," which is now available as a stand-alone e-book.

Vang's e-book, "The Good Hmong Girl Eats Raw Laab," comes from "Hmong and American: From Refugees to Citizens."

Other authors whose work is--or will be--offered on MHS Express include Jim Ragsdale, Rhoda Gilman, Philip J. Anderson, and Richard Moe.

The books are available through kindle, nook, kobo and iTunes, and so far the prices range from 99 cents to $1.99.
