Terrace Books

Terrace Books, a trade imprint of the University of Wisconsin Press, takes its name from the Memorial Union Terrace, located at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Since its inception in 1907, the Wisconsin Union has provided a venue for students, faculty, staff, and alumni to debate art, music, politics, and the issues of the day. It is a place where theater, music, drama, dance, outdoor activities, and major speakers are made available to the campus and the community. Click here to learn more about the Wisconsin Union.

“Kelly Cherry has a charged intellect that enlivens whatever it lights on. In A Kind of Dream she achieves a moment of transcendence that is rare in American fiction. I have a suspicion it may be a great book.”

Space

Jesse Lee Kercheval

“A sweetly honest memoir of a girl growing up amid the glare of the rocket launches from Cape Canaveral. … [A] coming-of-age story, but punctuated by the romance and thunder of rockets entering space.”
