Dearest Readers

Pat Conroy Week"Read everything. Go deeper." This is the advice that Pat Conroy once gave to a group of high school kids who wanted to become writers, and it encapsulates his attitude towards a literary life, and his belief that literature, story, storytelling, writing, reading . . . that all these things are necessary to us.  Conroy was a tireless supporter of literary life and of writers. He was a mentor and a man always generous with his time and advice, and he is one of the reasons the South's literary tradition is so vibrant and strong. 

It is to continue this legacy that the Pat Conroy Literary Center was founded this year, and to raise support for that same mission of  "encouraging a Southern reading and writing community for generations to come" October 24-28 has been declared "Pat Conroy Week."

Make at least a $41 donation to the Pat Conroy Literary Center during "Pat Conroy Week" and be entered in a drawing to win a full set of the winners and finalists of the 2016 Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize. 41 books for $41!

You could, of course, make two $41 donations to double your chances of winning all those books! And really, if the mission is more important that the books, you could always donate right now!

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


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

Gertie's Leap to Greatness“What’s going on in there?” Aunt Rae yelled from the  living room.

“Nothing!” Gertie whipped out the turkey baster.

She wiggled her index finger between the frog’s lips— if you could call them lips— and poked the pipette into  his mouth. Then she squeezed the blue bulb at the other  end, forcing oxygen into his lungs.

The air must have revived him quickly, or maybe he  was a little less dead than Gertie had hoped, because  he sprang for the edge of the counter. Gertie lunged  sideways and cupped her hands over him.

“There, there,” she said. “You’re safe now.”

She peeked at him through her fingers, and he peeked  back at her, his eyeballs quivering with gratitude. Or  maybe they quivered with rage. It was hard to tell.

She wrapped her hands around the frog’s middle,  turned on her heel, and crashed into a soft, flowery  stomach.

“Oof,” said Aunt Rae. She blinked at the frog in Gertie’s  hands. “What in the Sam Hill are you doing?”

“I resuscitated him.” Gertie held the frog closer.

Aunt Rae moved to stand over the air vent in the  kitchen floor, and her house dress ballooned around her  legs. “You what?”

“Resuscitated,” said Gertie. “It means I brought him  back to life.”

“I know what it means.” Aunt Rae swayed her weight  from foot to foot. “Why’d you resuscitate a ugly old bull- frog? That’s what I don’t know.”

Gertie sighed. She spent a lot of time explaining things  that should have been obvious to people. “I did it so he  could become a miracle of science,” she said.

“Huh.” Aunt Rae wrinkled her nose at the frog. “Looks  more like a monstrosity of science to me.”

Gertie gasped. “Oh my Lord.”

“What?”

“Aunt Rae, that’s even better!”

--Kate Beasley, Gertie's Leap to Greatness (Farrar, Straus, Giroux 2016)

Escape from the Lizzarks

TenNapel has created a very real Reptiles vs. Amphibians world in which Little Herk, the weakest of the Nnewts, is forced to flee his home when his town is invaded by the scary Lizzarks.

Confined to water due to his underdeveloped legs, Herk navigates the big wide world with an evil overlord hot on his tail. He must find the strength he possesses within himself, different from all the others -- his life depends on it!

This is a great start to a new graphic novel series for kids. Fans of Zita the Spacegirl or Amulet and Bones--here's something new for you!

Escape from the Lizzarks by Doug TenNapel (Graphix) Recommended by Amanda at Inkwood Books Tampa FL 

 

I Stink!

I Stink is a book I read to my seven year old son a few months ago.

He really enjoyed following the garbage truck through the book to see what he does on his daily route. One thing I liked was, everything the garbage truck ate, he ate alphabetically. This is a great kids book and everyone will love this smelly, sassy garbage truck.

I Stink! by Kate McCullan (HarperTrophy) Recommended by Christina at Blue Ridge Books Waynesville NC

 

Paper Wishes

Ten-year-old Manami’s family is forced to relocate to a camp for Japanese Americans during WWII.

She tries to sneak her dog, Yujin, into the camp, but is caught by the soldiers. Manami doesn’t speak in the prison village. She writes paper wishes that she hopes will sail through the air to her dog.

This is a beautifully written story about family and survival, perfect for young readers interested in WWII history.

Okra Picks: Gertie's Leap to Greatness


Gertie's Leap to Greatness"Meet the new Ramona Quimby!" -- Entertainment Weekly

Gertie Reece Foy is 100% Not-From-Concentrate awesome. She has a daddy who works on an oil rig, a great-aunt who always finds the lowest prices at the Piggly Wiggly, and two loyal best friends. So when her absent mother decides to move away from their small town, Gertie sets out on her greatest mission yet: becoming the best fifth grader in the universe to show her mother exactly what she'll be leaving behind. There's just one problem: Seat-stealing new girl Mary Sue Spivey wants to be the best fifth grader, too. And there is simply not enough room at the top for the two of them.

From debut author Kate Beasley, and with illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Jillian Tamaki, comes a classic tale of hope and homecoming that will empty your heart, then fill it back up again--one laugh at a time.

Gertie is a fifth-grade force to be reckoned with! Kate Beasley packs so much into this lovely story - there is heart, gravity, and humor all wrapped up with Jillian Tamaki's amazing illustrations. Like Raymie Nightingale or Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo, Beasley somehow addresses complicated family issues and real-world problems through the lens of a quirky and authentic child. I loved meeting Gertie and her classmates and I can't wait to put this book into the hands of kids, teachers, and parents. Kate Beasley is sure to have a long and illustrious career ahead of her, starting with this stunning debut novel! --recommended by Johanna at Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC.

Pat Conroy's advice to young writers


Pat Conroy's foreword to Writing South Carolina: Selections from the First Annual High School Writing Contest, edited by Steven Lynn with Aïda Rogers; © University of South Carolina Press, reprinted with publisher’s permission

Pat Conroy Week

Donate at least a $41 to the Pat Conroy Literary Center during "Pat Conroy Week" (10/24-10/28) and be entered in a drawing to win a full set of the winners and finalists of the 2016 Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize. 41 books for $41!

In the summer of 1961, my family crossed over the Combahee River and entered into Beaufort County for the first time. I was fifteen years old and had never heard of Beaufort, South Carolina, in my life. It was my twenty-third move since my birth, and Beaufort High would be the eleventh school I’d attended and the third high school in my adolescence. I was in the middle of a very unhappy childhood.

But I was a military brat, and my mother had convinced her seven children that we were serving America whenever we moved because our father was a fighter pilot and our nation needed him. Little did we know that we were driving toward the life we were meant to live and toward the destiny we were all meant to share. I had entered the Lowcountry of South Carolina for the first time in my life, a place of such mysterious and uncommon beauty that it still strikes me as some lost archipelago of paradise. I had no clue that I would spend the next fifty-three years of my life writing about this sacred place and the amazing people I found there.

This much I know. I was a teenager, like all of you are, and like you, I entertained the improbable dream that I wanted to be a writer and that I had things to say. I also know this—all of you who contributed to this book write much better than I did in high school, and the stuff I published in The Breakers, our literary magazine, would not have made the cut in your wonderful book. I’m reading my dinky poems and quasi-essays as I write this, and I think objectively that I showed little promise during those awkward, melancholy years of my boyhood. You, ladies and gentlemen, write with a verve and a confidence I don’t believe I matched until my final years at the Citadel. As high school writers in South Carolina, I think you’re writing better sentences and thinking deeper thoughts and showing off a more refined talent than I could present to my teachers in high school. Someone has taught you well and you’ve been smart enough to listen, and you’re using the English language with both purpose and gracefulness.
