Miss. Books, Music, and Beverages
October 22, 2008
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."
Wow, lemuriabooks has a very well organized blog! Well, thanks, as always, and talk soon!

Susan, I am just now seeing your sweet comments about the new blog layout... thanks for the mention and I really appreciate you keeping up with us! Maggie mentioned that you came by the store recently... I'm sorry I missed you!

Caroline, sorry I missed you! I got a couple of good kids' books when I was at the store, including The Shoe Bird, by Eudora Welty.
I never miss a trip to Lemuria when I'm in Jackson. I first went to the store when it was in The Quarter!
