My friends at Lemuria Books, in Jackson, Miss., have redesigned their blog, and it's looking fine. Right now the spotlight is on two locally produced nature books for children. Drop by and say hey.
Of interest to music fans is another Mississippi-based blog, Highway 61 Radio: The Best in Blues Music and Culture: Past, Present, and Future. Highway 61 even offers a free download of a Mavis Staples song.
Don't forget about the Southern Foodways Alliance, currently touting its upcoming symposium "The Liquid South, from Well Water to Sparkling Muscadine." Not to worry: "Buttermilk will get its due."
