{Peace. Good. Dream.}

In which a woman seeks recommendations for a start-up book club, a parent seeks recommendations for raising "kind, young citizens" a young man does not seek recommendations from his father since his father knows nothing about basketball, but he gets some advice anyway.

I love indie bookstores because. . .
"They feature hidden gems and not just the top ten."
--- Virginia, in North Carolina

"It started when I was seven years old and my very own daddy spoke to our congregation about Martin Luther King's life and tragic death . . . three words have held on to me from that day, three words: Peace. Good Dream."-Andrea Davis Pinkney

It is that time of year again. The time when your conscience's evil nagging twin is badgering you about the New Year's resolutions you've already given up, and trying to shame you into some spring cleaning to appease the guilt trip.

Ignore it. Her ladyship, the editor, has a much better suggestion of what to do with one's time besides self-flagellation: Read a book. Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to read, and how much better a book is, when there are dirty dishes in the sink or laundry piles on the washing machine?
Southern Book Prize
This is also the time of year when, if ignoring one's housekeeping is going well, you still have you list of best books of the past year somewhat fresh in your mind. "Best of 2017" has been a common theme on reader sites and literary newsletters and no doubt in your own social media feeds.

This is fortunate, because the nominations for The Southern Book Prize are now open, and will be through Valentine's Day. So be sure to take a moment to nominate your favorite Southern books from last year.

To be eligible, nominated titles must be by a Southern author, or Southern in nature, (or both!) Nominations must be in association with a Southern indie bookstore on this list -- either one you work for, or one you shop at. Nominations that don't reference a Southern indie bookstore are removed from consideration.

And leave the dishes until later. They aren't going anywhere.

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.

Under a Cloudless Sky

We meet Ruby and Bean
Beulah Mountain, West Virginia
June 1933

Ruby and Bean met in the summer of 1933 in a town called Beulah Mountain, in the southwestern coalfields of West Virginia, shortly before the massacre that has become a footnote in some history books. When people speak of that time, they talk of red and black. Blood was the price paid and coal was the prize. Miners' families were collateral damage in a war against the earth itself, a battle fought with pick and TNT.

 

There are a thousand places to begin the story. Ruby and Bean's first meeting . . . Bean's big regret . . . where her name came from . . .the shock when they discovered what was happening on the third floor of the company store. But there is another memory that floats to the surface and sits on the water like a katydid on a lily pad. The memory is wrapped in music and preaching and two friends tripping through the underbrush, hand in hand, giggling, and for a moment without a care in the world, the hurt and pain of life dismissed.

 
--Chris Fabry, Under a Cloudless Sky (Tyndale House, 2018) 9781414387789

Read This! Books with Street Cred

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers


Need to Know by Karen Cleveland
Clear your calendar because you won't want to do anything until you finish this book! This was intense without being over the top - fans of espionage thrillers are going to love it!

Need to Know by Karen Cleveland ($26.00*, Ballantine Books), recommended by Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC.


 

 

 



About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis
There's definitely something About That Kiss! With her usual flair for romance and laughter, Jill Shalvis serves up a great addition to her Heartbreaker Bay series. Kylie might be more comfortable crafting furniture than kissing sexy ladies man Joe, but the sparks fly between them when she needs his help on a personal level. Favorite couples from the previous books add levels of warmth and wit, but there's no wrong way to read this series--start at the beginning or dive right into book four--either way you won't regret!

About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis ($7.99*, Avon Books), recommended by Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA.

 

 



The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
From Lemuria Books blog:
"The year is 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side and the Gold siblings have heard rumors of a mystical psychic living in their area. This rumored gypsy-lady claims to be able to tell anyone the exact date that they will die. The siblings, all under the age of thirteen, decide to visit the woman together and then–one at a time–learn the exact date of their death. Such is the setup for Chloe Benjamin's new novel, The Immortalists [...]Each story holds your attention, even though you know the outcome. It's almost impossible to not become emotionally invested in each sibling. Benjamin has written a rich and thought provoking novel on the nature of believing. How does learning when you will die, even if it could be untrue, determine how you live your life in the present? Is our time of death predetermined, or can we play a part in changing our destiny? This fascinating read leaves you dreaming for long afterward."

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin ($26.00*, G.P. Putnam's Sons), recommended by Lemuria Books, Jackson, MS.



Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak
Shafak crafts a novel that is highly philosophical and entertaining. There are themes that speak to world politics and feel so right in their timing as well as timeless questions about God and love. A propulsive read that will leave you wanting more of Shafak's skill with language.

Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak ($27.00*, Bloomsbury USA), recommended by Malaprop's Bookstore/Café, Asheville, NC.

The Okra Pick of the Week


Under a Cloudless Sky

A charming and engrossing novel for fans of Southern fiction and the recent hit memoir Hillbilly Elegy about a lush and storied coal-mining town—and the good people who live there—in danger of being destroyed for the sake of profit. Will the truth about the town's past be its final undoing or its saving grace?

1933. In the mining town of Beulah Mountain, West Virginia, two young girls form an unbreakable bond against the lush Appalachian landscape, coal dust and old hymns filling their lungs and hearts. Despite the polarizing forces of their fathers—one a mine owner, one a disgruntled miner —Ruby and Bean thrive under the tender care of Bean's mama, blissfully unaware of the rising conflict in town and the coming tragedy that will tear them apart forever.

2004. Hollis Beasley is taking his last stand. Neighbors up and down the hollow have sold their land to Coleman Coal and Energy, but Hollis is determined to hold on to his family legacy on Beulah Mountain. Standing in his way is Buddy Coleman, an upstart mining executive who hopes to revitalize the dying town by increasing coal production and opening the Company Store Museum. He'll pay homage to the past—even the massacre of 1933—while positioning the company for growth at all costs.

What surprises them all is how their stories will intersect with a feisty octogenarian living hundreds of miles away. When Ruby Handley Freeman's grown children threaten her independence, she takes a stand of her own and disappears, propelling her on a journey to face a decades-old secret that will change everything for her and those she meets.
