26 McCrary, Dean Lost in Atlanta (Author Signed)
Black Reality Pub Llc 2005 0977068706 / 9780977068708 First Edition; Second Printing Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed and signed by Rikeem Wilburn. ; 0.87 x 8.35 x 5.51 Inches; 356 pages; It is estimated that roughly five hundred people move to Atlanta Georgia per day. Many come in search of a new life; others arrive as a means of escape from the monotony of their former lives, anxiously awaiting any opportunity to recreate, and lose themselves within the vast newness that has become Atlanta Georgia. Brian, Glenn, Malik, and, Sean are four such individuals who also came to Atlanta for many of the same reasons. Their story however, is unique in that they came to Atlanta in an attempt to embrace change only to discover that in order to make a change one must first be willing to change:

Brianís constant attempts at buying love would ultimately lead him to discover that real love is priceless.

Glennís arrogant love quest coupled with his inability to control his lustful desires is what will make him become his own worst enemy.

Malikís resentment, and contempt for the shallow nature of young black women became the reason for his treatment of them as objects, and prevented him from opening up and allowing himself to be loved.

Fate steps in just as Sean attempts to start a family and convert to living a quality life; bringing it all to an abrupt end.; Signed by Author

29 Price, Eugenia At Home on St. Simons (Author Signed)
Atlanta, Ga Peachtree Publishers 1981 0931948169 / 9780931948169 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by Critt Graham Signed by Author
Inscribed by Author on Title Page."Signed for Ruth who loves "the Island of Yesterday.", My best Eugenia Price". Contents clean Dust Jacket , not price clipped, shows wear on edges with minor creases, and one small nick as shown. Book under dust is in near fine condition. Illustrations throughout by Critt Graham are wonderful. The millions who have read Eugenia Price's novels know that central to each of her stories is a strong, deeply rooted sense of place, and readers quickly fall in love with Ms. Price's settings. For thirty years, faithful readers have followed Ms. Price to the vivid worlds of her Georgia trilogy, her Florida trilogy, her Savannah quartet, and her many other novels. Her stories of local people and the homes where their stories unfold easily become familiar, loved places. "That a house, a locale, is central to all my novels, makes good sense," Ms. Price believes. "I am and have always been almost overly sensitive to the house, the place in which I live. Finding St. Simons Island changed my very life-its tempo, its basic simple quality, even my own capacity for lasting relationships. Here, Eugenia shares with her worldwide reading public some of what life was like during the first years in which she and her best friend and fellow writer, Joyce Blackburn, were becoming Islanders. "These short pieces," she says, "inlcude my observations day by day of what it was like at last to be at home on St. Simons. We were learning how to be neighbors, after so many years of complex life in the huge northern city of Chicago; learning how to care deeply for people with whom, at first glace, we had little in common. We were understanding what it really meant to come home." Eugenia Price, called by many St. Simons' own "beloved invader," here shows readers those early years as they were being lived. Her cherished ST. SIMONS MEMOIR was written from memory and notes in old desk calendars, but AT HOME ON ST. SIMONS illuminates some of the experiences which most shaped and changed Eugenia-written as they occured. In the opening chapter, Ms. Price attempts to explain-almost as though to herself-why, in the face of such drastic change on the small, once provincial island on the Georgia coast, she is still at home on St. Simons. Her emotional connection to the island and her sense of place absorb local St. Simons readers as well as those who have never seen the island firsthand. Millions have read Eugenia Price's books, which have been translated into more that fifteen languages. The formative, poignant moments related in AT HOME ON ST. SIMONS bring a universal appeal to this singular volume that retraces the beginning of Ms. Price's real-life love for St. Simons Island. Scans available.

A Place Called Sweet Apple, Country Living and Southern Recipes, Sibley, Celestine
33 Sibley, Celestine A Place Called Sweet Apple, Country Living and Southern Recipes
Garden City, NY Garden City: Doubleday, 1967, Garden City 1967 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by Ray Cruz Signed by Author
Signed by author. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. A Place Called Sweet Apple is your personal invitation to a cozy retreat in a very special spot.Sweet Apple-the very name evokes a rural charm. That's what Celestine Sibley discovered on her initial visit to the primitive log cabin built in 1844. And that's what she continued to find after many years living in the house, lovingly restores and filled with the memories of her own family's life there."How an old abandoned house can take hold of a reasonably sane woman's heart, fill her mind, lap up her energy and change her life is still something of a mystery to me," Sibley muses. By the time you have savored her tale of restoring the old house, Sweet Apple's charm will no longer be a mystery. The dilapidated ruin into which Sibley invested her heart and energy became a community project and Sibley and her family grew to love the colorful and interesting lifestyle of their neighborhood.This is far more, however, than a story about breathing new life into an old house and moving from the city to the country. It is a story of personal discovery and fulfillment laced with wry humor and good common sense. Sibley's vision of living and loving is so clear, so pure, that no reader can put down this book without feeling enriched. The sampling of Southern recipes that she has collected here are also certain to delight.; 1.11 x 9.13 x 6.57 Inches; Signed by Author
