Dorthea Benton Frank’s Beloved Books

We have several of our beloved Dorothea Benton Frank’s books in hardcover. They are gently used, most are first editions and one is signed!

These are books you want to keep and read over and over!

We also have “Three O’clock Dinner” by Josephine Pinckney that Dot mentions in her earlier writing.

Summer’s Best-Sellers!

 

Hurricane Dorian surely brought an unwelcome ending to our wonderful summer season. As we look forward to autumn and cooler temperatures (minus the mosquitoes, thank you!), we thought our customers might be interested to know what our bestsellers were this summer.

In nonfiction, ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama  ‘Educated’ by Tara Westover and ‘The Pioneers’ by David McCullough  topped the list; while in fiction, we had many titles: ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ by Delia Owens, ‘The Summer Guests’ by Mary Alice Monroe, ‘The Summer of ‘69 ’by Elin Hilderbrand, ‘Queen Bee’ by Dorothea Benton Frank, ‘Becoming Mrs. Lewis’ by Patti C. Henry, ‘Sunset Beach’ by Mary Kay Andrews, ‘The Favorite Daughter’ by Patti Callahan and The ‘Outsider’ by Stephen King.

New fall releases are coming in daily. Come by and check them out!

Goodbye, Dottie…

The Pelican Bookstore staff was saddened this week to learn of the death of Dorothea Benton (Dottie) Frank. Dottie Frank was a customer favorite, and could always be counted on to produce great summer reads for beachgoers.

She has come to our area several times for our author talk series at Silver Coast Winery. Our condolences go out to her family and friends. You will be missed, Queen “D”.

This Thursday: Kristy Woodson Harvey Signing on May 2nd

Kristy Woodson Harvey will be joining us Thursday, May 2nd from 5 pm to 7 pm at Silver Coast Winery, and she will read and sign copies of her newest book The Southern Side of Paradise

Admission is $7.50 and includes a glass of wine. Silver Coast Winery is located at 6680 Barbeque Rd NW, Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

About The Southern Side of Paradise:

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her–and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff–one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart–everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

About Kristy Woodson Harvey:

Kristy Woodson Harvey is a born-and-bred North Carolina girl who loves all four seasons–especially fall in Chapel Hill, where she attended college, and summer in Beaufort, where she and her family spend every free moment. The author of The Southern Side of Paradise, The Secret of Southern Charm, Slightly South of Simple, Dear Carolina, and Lies and Other Acts of Love, Kristy is also the founder of the popular interior design blog Design Chic.
