As we discussed at this week's story-time session, lots of different people celebrate this season in lots of different ways, but the common themes we discovered were lights/candles, food, and spending time w/family and friends! So however you are spending this Winter Solstice and the surrounding weeks, may you find much comfort and joy surrounded by loved ones!
Wishing you all much Light and Warmth!

Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning
hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a
decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this
hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John
Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a
thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of
nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining
first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South
with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case.
is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters:
the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the
turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of
poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in
Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of
pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the
acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing
con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball;
and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard
at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with
Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive
in a town where everyone knows everyone else.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived
and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most
beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.
Books are available at the Main Circulation Desk during the month before
