You grow up in the Mississippi Delta, you learn early on how to entertain yourself,” wrote Julia Reed. She is the queen of entertaining herself – and her readers – in her new book Julia Reed’s South: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long. Rick Bragg has taken us down highways and yummy byways all over the region in My Southern Journey. Roy Blount, Jr. adds his delicious sensibility with Save Room for Pie: Food Songs and Chewy Ruminations, and Georgia chef Jennifer Hill Booker adds a French flair to southern classics in From Field Peas to Foie Gras. Bon vivant John Pope (Getting Off at Elysian Fields) moderates.
