Coming this Fall to Square Books.....


Square Books is looking forward to an extraordinary fall of great books from good friends and family. 

October 16th we will be hosting an event for the publication of HEAVY: AN AMERICAN MEMOIR, by Kiese Laymon, our friend and the Ottilie Schillig Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Mississippi.  

Our old friend John Grisham has a new title releasing on October 23rd, THE RECKONING.  Returning to his Clanton, Mississippi setting, it is the story of  Pete Banning--a family patriarch, war hero, good neighbor, and good Methodist who walks in to the church one crisp October morning in 1946 and shoots the Rev. Dexter Bell to death, but refuses to tell anyone why.  We will have signed copies.  Pre-order yours now.

That same day, we'll be celebrating the publication of Elizabeth Heiskell's latest book, THE SOUTHERN LIVING PARTY BOOK, an updated version of that 70s classic with Elizabeth's  modern recipes and tips for carefree, but stylish entertaining.  Fans of her last book, WHAT CAN I BRING? will not be disappointed.  Join us for samples and signing at 5pm. 

Later that week, on October 26th, we are happy to welcome Erin and Ben Napier, Ole Miss alumni and hosts of HGTV's Home Town for a signing of their memoir, MAKE SOMETHING GOOD TODAY.  Ben proposed to Erin on the balcony of Square Books, so that makes us kin...right? 

These are only a few of the many great new releases this fall, including events for more than 50 authors, included in the just released Dear Reader, our fall newsletter.  Come by the store to pick up a copy or check it out online at:
