February Media Roundup I

Every week, our wonderful publicity team tracks the cross-platform media coverage our authors and their books receive. We’re proud to share our latest and greatest highlights below with links to where you can read more about these great titles!

February is off to a great start for UT Press. Since the month began, many of our books and their authors have received a fair bit of (well-deserved) love.

Margo Price, author of Maybe We’ll Make It, was featured for SPIN’s Book Club, an interview conducted by musician and writer Sadie Dupuis. In her introduction to their conversation, Dupuis highlights Margo being a UTP stan, calling her “a champion of the publisher and its writers” and going on to highlight recommendations from Margo for I’ve Had to Think Up a Way to Survive, Black Country MusicAll I Ever Wantedand, for the second time since being Gianna-pilled, Why Sinéad O’Connor Matters.

Margo was interviewed last week for Death, Sex & Money, which included discussion of the book. She shared three inspirations for Strays for a sidebar piece in the February issue of Vanity Fair, which included mention of the memoir. She was also the subject of a cover story at Pollstar, and featured in a piece at the Houston Press ahead of her appearance there last night, where Gladys Fuentes writes, “Maybe We’ll Make It reads much like Price’s song writing, beautiful, heartfelt and sincere stories where Price doesn’t hold back telling it like it is exposing her own vulnerabilities and learning experiences along the way.” Maybe We’ll Make It also got a mention in a roundup at the Nashville Scene of “Another Look: More Recent Releases You Don’t Want to Miss,” where Stephen Trageser highlights Strays and calls the book, “[An] outstanding and unflinching memoir.”

Bruce Adams, author of You’re with Stupid, appears on last week’s episode of Sound Opinions discussing his book. His interview begins around the 18th minute of the episode.

Teaching Black History to White People was included in a list at Education Week titled, “How to Teach Black History: A Resource List.” LaGarrett J. King writes, “Many educators struggle with implementing Black history courses, and this text can support those efforts. While the title positions the book for a white audience, anyone wanting to improve Black history teaching will find the information helpful.”

Egypt’s Football Revolution was featured at Jadaliyya, including an interview with Rommel and an excerpt from the book.

José R. Ralat and American Tacos  were mentioned in a taco feature at SeattleMet.

Before Lawrence v. Texas was highlighted at the New Reads blog.

Selling Black Brazil was reviewed in Latin American & Latinx Visual Culture, alongside Rafael Cardoso’s Modernity in Black and White. Abigail Lapin Dardashti writes, “With a compelling and clear prose, Romo’s study is a welcome addition to the literature about Afro-Brazilian art,” concluding, “Reevaluating the relationship of Black identity and Brazilian modernism, both books push us to rethink how we teach and study nationalism, race, and art in Brazil.”


Hoping . Thanks for joining us, see you next week!
