okra picksColumbia, SC -- Fall is upon us, which means that it is time to pick some Okra! The Fall 2014 Okra Picks have just been announced--the best southern lit, fresh off the vine.  All the chosen books have a strong Southern focus and are published between October and December, 2014, and all of them have fans among Southern indie booksellers; people who are always looking out for the next great writer who should be on your plate and in your TBR stack.  So it is very likely the next time you visit your local Southern indie bookstore, someone will hand you one and say, “You’ve got to read this!”
