Scent of Magnolia by Ashley Farley ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


Ashley Farley writes family-based Southern fiction and her books never disappoint.  She is one of those authors that I will buy their book before I even know what it's about because based on her previous books, I know it will be good.  Trust me, this new book continues her reputation as the queen of Southern fiction.

Letters to a Writer of Color Edited by Deepa Anappara and Taymour Soomr ~ a Review

by MK French


This collection is written by various writers of color, using empathy and wisdom to point out the conventions used in fiction. Why are novels written the way that they are, and using the structures that have become so familiar? They talk about using their backgrounds to lend authenticity to writing, censorship, the creation of art, humor, and giving themselves permission to be themselves and not a watered-down version for public consumption. Different cultures, genders, and sexualities are represented, giving us an array of opinions to look at our assumptions regarding what we read and how we evaluate it.

The Creative Vegetable Gardener by Kelly Smith Trimble ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


It feels like spring here in the southeast U.S. We had temps in the high 70s and even hit the 80s at the end of the week. I can't wait to start digging in the ground, but the memory of the late freeze we experienced last spring has me holding back. So instead I read about gardening.
