The Deepest South of All

No one does duality quite like the American South and The Deepest South of All is a portrait of that very duality. Part travelogue, part history, and all Mississippi; this book is a reminder that we are more than one story. Here, Richard Grant casts a wide net using the sheer breadth of interesting characters from Natchez's past and present to build a narrative of a city still attempting to reconcile its identity. Through Natchez we have the opportunity to reflect on our heritage as Southerners.

Book Club - The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

Event date: 
09/24/2020 - 6:00pm
Event address: 
Online via Zoom

This month we will be diving into Octavia Butler's dystopian classic, The Parable of the Sower. First published in 1993, The Parable of the Sower sees the world of the 2020s in a state of chaos...so for a while I thought this book (originally our book club pick for March of this year) was too heavy for the present moment. But every month, as I think about what we will read together, I keep coming back to Butler and to this book.

Hurricane Prep!

Hopefully the bad weather will continue to pass us by, but our outdoor sign will get some maintenance while it's down anyway!

John always gets a little excited about hurricane prep because it fills him with that extra sense of urgency to get essential tasks done. You've gotta spend that nervous energy somehow!

We are so excited to be able to offer signed copies of local author Swearingen Durham's debut fantasy, The Blackstone Ritual!

All pre-ordered copies will be signed and eligible to receive** an exclusive enamel pin designed by Gabriella Bujdoso as long as supplies of the pin last! Place those pre-orders soon and dive into the first book in the Tales of Bardenwood series.
