Summer of Southern Women: The CHB Summer Book Club

To Kill a Mockingbird, was published in 1960, the much-loved and critically acclaimed novel - and the sole work - of Harper Lee. Now, 55 years after the publication of this literary masterpiece, Lee has taken the book world by storm with the announcement of Go Set a Watchman, the highly anticipated sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird. In honor of this momentous literary event, Michelle and I have decided to bring back our summer online book club (of CHBPotter fame), this time celebrating noteworthy southern women writers!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day from CHB! Today is the day we celebrate our declaration of independence from England in 1776 239 years ago! And what better way to celebrate our independence and freedom than reading up on some American history or American literature? So express your patriotic pride with one of these titles we recommend for 4th of July weekend:

SIBA Summer Okra Picks

Southern indie booksellers like their okra, and they love their southern books. The new list of Okra Picks --great southern books, fresh off the vine-- has just been released. A dozen new books that all have two things in common: They are southern in nature, and there is a southern indie bookseller that wants everyone to read each one! The SIBA Okra picks offer a curated reading list for every season.

Here are this year's picks:

Summer of Southern Women: The Color Purple

We're back at the end of week two with another novel crossed off our list! Michelle and I have just  finished up Alice Walker's beautiful novel, The Color Purple, and we're ready to give our thoughts on this much-loved classic.

V: I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't always a happy book, but it gave me good feelings, mostly, to read it, if that makes any sense. The novel is filled to the brim with sayings, characters, and situations that make you think and make you reconsider your own viewpoint on life, and reading it was a wonderful experience.
