{The once and future book festival.}

In which a book festival is born, and a book festival is reborn, Ms. Annie B.Jones credits Harper Lee with inspiring some of the best conversations she has had this week, Ms. Nuala O'Connor does not fight crime with poetry, and Mr. Brian Panowich is glad he answered the phone.

Dearest Readers,

Mississippi Book FestivalLast month John Evans, the indefatigable force behind Lemuria Books, announced the creation of the Mississippi Book Festival, featuring Mr. John Grisham as the keynote for the inaugural event on August 22. "In my 40 years of bookselling," wrote Evans,"I have witnessed the power of real books in the hands of readers. In our first statewide book festival, The Mississippi Book Festival, we will celebrate the joys of reading and the authors who bring our culture to the page. Reading real books is where it all starts."

Her ladyship, the editor, is of the opinion that there can never be too many book festivals, for the simple reason that there can never be too many book lovers and book readers.

But the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Last week the South Carolina Humanities Council announced that the SC Book Festival had been canceled for 2016, just shy of its twentieth anniversary.

Actually, it was announced that the SC Book Festival would continue in "a new and improved format" that involved a year-long series of events and programs, a literary speakers bureau of authors for public programs, fast-track literary grant opportunities, and financial support for currently existing literary programs across the state.

So, more like a year-long, state-wide book festival. It is hard to argue with that. The Lord giveth.

Here are a few other book festivals in the South to put on your calendar:

Sep. 4-6: Decatur Book Festival (Decatur, GA)
Sep. 9-13: Mid-South Book Festival (Memphis, TN)
Sep. 10-12: Bookmarks Festival (Winston-Salem, NC)
Sep. 18-19: The Black Writers & Book Clubs Literary Festival (Memphis, TN)
Sep. 24-26: The Florida Heritage Book Festival (Saint Augustine, FL)
Sep. 27-30: Fall for the Book (Fairfax, VA)
Oct. 9-11: Southern Festival of Books (Nashville, TN)

Road trip, anyone?

Read independently. And shop local.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


Noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.

Among the Fair MagnoliasJuly 1878

Russell Andrew Champion had known before he set one dust-covered boot on the parched Texas ground that it had been a mistake to come home. No good ever came from seeing things that had haunted a man's dreams for well on seven years.

The outlaw Scout Proffitt had been correct when he'd muttered under his breath that some thing can never be undone.

Instead of returning to Broken Arrow, Russell should have taken another drink, ridden in another direction, agreed to another job.

He should have done something. Heck, anything, in order to avoid the pain he was about to bear. After all, some things were marked too deeply in his memory to ever attempt to erase. He shouldn't have even thought to try.

--Shelley Gray, "An Outlaw's Heart," in Among the Fair Magnolias (Thomas Nelson, 2015) 9781401690731

Book & Author Gossip

Nuala O'Connor: The art of influence

Miss EmilyI am not in the business of converting crooks to poetry, but it makes me think about the writers who converted me to literature and which of them directly influenced me as a writer. In the middle of that thinking I am struck by the fact that my personality – melancholic and introverted, but sociable – influences not just my own work, but the mechanism by which I’m drawn to, and influenced by, the work of others. 9780143126751

Turning over a new page

One day in April, Suzanne went into Storyteller’s Book Store to coordinate an author meeting for an upcoming Writer’s Night In The Forest and mentioned to Bridges that she would love to own a bookstore someday. A few days later, Bridges called her and said he had decided to retire and asked if she would be interested in buying the bookstore. “Dave!” she exclaimed to her husband, “Can you believe this?!” To his credit, Dave could. He is a man who understands the need to follow one’s passions.

SBF announces 2015 authors

Humanities Tennessee, which each year presents Nashville's Southern Festival of Books, has announced the lineup of authors who will headline the 27th annual event in the fall. As has come to be expected with the festival, the roster includes Pulitzer Prize winners, New York Times bestsellers and book club favorites, including Rick Bragg,Geraldine Brooks, Pat Conroy, David Maraniss, Paul Theroux, Rebecca Wells, Scott Westerfeld and first-time author David Gregory, former NBC news reporter and "Meet the Press" host. The free, three-day celebration of the written word, which will take place Oct. 9-11 atLegislative Plaza in downtown Nashville and at the Nashville Public Library, attracts thousands of book lovers to meet their favorite seasoned authors and discover new writers.

SC Book Festival canceled

One of the biggest literary draws and book events of the region is being canceled in favor of new statewide programming, organizers say. The almost 20-year-old S.C. Book Festival held in the spring will give way to new, literary offerings that will be available “...in every corner of the state” officials with The Humanities Council of South Carolina said. Funded and organized by The Humanities CouncilSC, the festival will evolve into an exciting new set of literary initiatives that will be available year-round and reach a wide and diverse audience in every corner of South Carolina.

Brian Panowich gets a phone call

Bull Mountain"I was shaking and my mouth was chaulky and I didn't know what to say to this man or even how to approach it because he was telling me how great this book was and how it was going to make waves," Panowich said of the call with Sobel. "He told me to sit down because my career was fixing to start and I didn't know what to tell him. What do you tell a man like that who has been doing it since 1971, who discovered and who has propelled James Ellroy into being who he is?" Panowich said he was so overcome with emotion after he got off the phone he hugged the first person he saw - his very surprised boss, Battalion Chief Jeremy Wallen. 9780399173967

New Bookstore in New Smyrna Beach

When Cheryl Brooks sold The Book Rack in Edgewater in 2012 to go to school to become a certified medical electrologist, she said she began missing the pleasures of running her own bookstore, which included interacting with customers and local authors. While she enjoys success today as an independent laser hair removal/skin care specialist, she has decided to rejoin the ranks of booksellers by opening Books by the Beach on Aug. 1.

Meet T. Fleischmann

T. FleischmannT Fleischmann lived by the Great Lakes until attending the University of Iowa and completing an MFA in Nonfiction Writing. Their essays have appeared in FOURTH GENRE, PLEIADES, INDIANA REVIEW, GULF COAST, and THE PINCH, as well as in the feminist magazine make/shift, and have been Notable Essays in THE BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS, 2009 and 2010. A Nonfiction Editor at DIAGRAM, T has settled in rural Tennessee after traveling for several years across the United States.

Syzygy, Beauty: An Essay

Syzygy, Beauty: An EssayThe word "syzygy" refers at once to the alignment of celestial bodies in astronomy, repeating relationships in mathematics, and male/female pairings in Gnosticism. T Fleischmann's SYZYGY, BEAUTY, then, is an essay ordered by complimentary needs: art criticism, the narrator's construction of a house, and the direct address of a lover. Playing with scale and repetition, the speaker keeps us off-center, and therefore always looking, as we are lead through an intimate relationship that is complicated and deepened by multiple partners, gender transitions, and itinerancy. In language both plainspoken and startling, Fleischmann attempts a reconciliation between the sadness and beauty that come with a love that must always be, in some ways, distant.

Okra Picks

From the Okra Picks

RuthlessA spine-tingling debut about the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse in reverse as a teen struggles to retain hope--and her sanity--while on the run from a cunning and determined killer.

Ruth Carver has always competed like her life depends on it. Ambitious. Tough. Maybe even mean. It's no wonder people call her Ruthless.

When she wakes up with a concussion in the bed of a moving pickup trick, she realizes she has been entered into a contest she can't afford to lose.

At a remote, rotting cabin deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ruth's blindfold comes off and she comes face-to-face with her captor. A man who believes his mission is to punish bad girls like Ruth. A man who has done this six times before.

The other girls were never heard from again, but Ruth won't go down easy. She escapes into the wilderness, but her hunter is close at her heels. That's when the real battle begins. That's when Ruth must decides just how far she'll go in order to survive.

Back home, they called her Ruthless. They had no idea just how right they were.

Go Set a Watchman

Go Set a WatchmanI finished Go Set a Watchman this weekend and... I loved it. It's not a perfect book, not by a long shot, but I do think it's an important one, particularly for the South. Atticus isn't perfect; instead, he's nuanced and complicated, like a lot of Southerners (and humans!) I know. My full review is up on our store's blog, but I also wanted to share how wonderful it has been to have so many fantastic literary conversations in the shop, at the register, as people are buying this book. Books make hot button issues a little safer to discuss, and I have had some of the best conversations with my customers over the past week, all thanks to Harper Lee and Go Set a Watchman. As a young, new bookstore owner, I have been pleasantly surprised and comforted at the power books still hold. 9780062409850

Anyway, just two cents from this bookseller in southern Georgia.

RuthlessTwo Children's recommendations from Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC

Jill: Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams

A harrowing survival thriller set in the Blue Ridge Mountains about a teenage equestrienne kidnapped by a serial killer who must dig down deep to find the will to first survive, then triumph. You won't be able to put this one down! 9781481422628

The Fun Book of Scary StuffMelissa: The Fun Book of Scary Stuff by Emily Jenkins

Some things in life are pretty scary. Monsters. Ghosts. Witches. The boy in this story makes a list and shares them with his dog, who isn't convinced that any of them are actually scary . . . except the dark (which is really scary, admit it!). A funny book to share with kids too scared to go to bed, that may offer some comfort in addition to the laughs. 9780374300005
