Frank Reiss and Emmy Carmichael from A Cappella Books in Atlanta stopped by On Second Thought to share their recommendations for our Southern Reading List. It's our series of authors and readers sharing books that define and reflect the South.
Carmichael recommends Caleb Johnson's Treeborne and Hannah Pittard's Visible Empire. Reiss recommends Anne Gisleson's The Futilitarians: Our Year of Thinking, Drinking, Grieving, and Reading and Michael Farris Smith's The Fighter.
The shop also sponsors events with authors. On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott will host two events sponsored by them next week.
The first event is with podcast host and journalist, Malcolm Gladwell. Gladwell is the man who introduced "the tipping point" to the lexicon and discusses his new book Talking to Strangers. He will be at the Ferst Center Thursday, Oct. 10.
The next event is with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Maddow will talk about her book blowout about the oil and gas industry, and how the industry is tied with the geopolitical role of Ukraine. She will be at the Fox Theater in Atlanta on Sunday, Oct. 13.
