FRANCES MAYES READING & SIGNING
Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Friday, April 18 at 7pm
Frances Mayes shares the story of her coming-of-age in the South in her new memoir, Under magnolia: A Southern Memoir. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls Under magnolia “a gutsy, honest portrait of the artist as a young girl” and Pat Conroy says, “Frances Mayes describes the birth of her extraordinary sensibility, the deep-pooled clarity of her writing, her giddy love of nature, and her sharp and satirical eye for those who brought her up to honorable womanhood in the tortured South of her girlhood.” The author of Under the Tuscan Sun, Mayes has also written several books of poetry and nonfiction as well as a novel.
