Yesterday, Burn Down The Ground came out and I had the pleasure of attending the release party at Rodeo Bar. It seemed like a strange place to have a book release party (there’s usually loud live music, a peanut-strewn floor, and a trailer inside the bar), but then I remembered what Kambri Crew’s memoir is about: Texas, growing up in a tin shed, and living with deaf parents. This last fact made for an excellent use of the space when Kambri and her Mom signed together through a medley of sweet songs like Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop.” It was the happy kind of tear-jerker performance that gives you an idea of what you’ll find in Kambri’s memoir, which you can find in our store right now!

Oh, I forgot to mention a major plot point in Kambri’s book (and life), and the absence of a certain person at last night’s festivities: Kambri’s father is still serving a prison sentence for attempted murder. And she still talks to him! If that doesn’t intrigue you, I don’t know what will.
