Bambi is one of the bookiest people ever known to Ocean Springs. She is our go to for book recommendations and she hasn't let us down yet! We are so lucky that this smart and insightful lady has agreed to host the bookclub at the Greenhouse!
Our first book will be the much talked about Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesymn Ward. (a McArthur Grant winner from Mississippi!)
"An intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, Sing, Unburied, Sing journeys through Mississippi’s past and present, examining the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power—and limitations—of family bonds."
Cary Hudson is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from the great state of Mississippi who resides somewhere between Memphis and New Orleans. He is a former drugstore clerk, landscaper, farm hand, waiter, house painter, pizza deliverer, and fry cook who currently spends his time canoeing the creeks of south MS, riding his bike to the snowcone stand, and going for leisurely walks with his dogs.
We will be partnering with the Friends of Jackson County and The Greenhouse on Porter for a light evening of sketching and merriment. Cats will be available for adoption so you can take your favorite home with you! Then immediately following, we will have cat yoga in the Greenhouse!
