Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman” Available at Pelican Bookstore!

 We’ve got plenty of copies of Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman” in store. They’re selling for $28 everywhere else, but we’re running a sale $21.95 for a copy!

Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman takes place in Maycomb, Alabama when Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch—”Scout”—returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past—a journey that can only be guided by one’s own conscience.

New Author Susan Boyer Added to Pelican Bookstore’s Summer Author Series

We’ve got another author to add to our Summer Author Series–Susan Boyer author of Lowcountry Boneyard. Susan will be signing copies of her book at Pelican Bookstore on Thursday, July 2nd at 1pm.

Lowcountry Boneyard tells the story of a twenty-three-year-old heiress from one of Charleston’s oldest families vanished a month ago. When her father hires private investigator Liz Talbot, Liz suspects the most difficult part of her job will be convincing the patriarch his daughter tired of his overbearing nature and left town. That’s what the Charleston Police Department believes.

But behind the garden walls South of Broad, family secrets pop up like weeds in the azaleas. The neighbors recollect violent arguments between Kent and her parents. Eccentric twin uncles and a gaggle of cousins covet the family fortune. And the lingering spirit of a Civil-War-era debutante may know something if Colleen, Liz’s dead best friend, can get her to talk.

Liz juggles her case, the partner she’s in love with, and the family she adores. But the closer she gets to what has become of Kent, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.

Susan lives in Greenville, SC, and runs away to the coast as often as she can. Her debut novel, Lowcountry Boil, won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel, the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense, and was an RWA Golden Heart® finalist. Susan’s short fiction has appeared in moonShine Review, Spinetingler Magazine, and Relief Journal among others.

New Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and Sunset Beach History Book Released!

New Book about the History of the South Brunswick Islands Released!

South Brunswick Islands- Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and Sunset Beach History Book

Discover the history of The South Brunswick Islands—Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and Sunset Beach—are man-made barrier islands formed when the North Carolina section of the Intracoastal Waterway was constructed between 1930 and 1940. In the late 1940s, Odell Williamson dreamed of a tranquil, family-vacation island and began buying tracts of land that would later become Ocean Isle Beach. This seven-mile-long island was incorporated as the town of Ocean Isle Beach in 1959.

Mannon C. Gore envisioned the three miles of Sunset Beach as a peaceful residential community when he purchased the island in 1955. With over eight miles of oceanfront, Holden Beach is the longest and the largest of the three islands in the group. Each island boasts a unique character and has remained quiet with pristine beaches and a focus on families.
