We are proud to be the first bookstore in America to have had a signing for Kathryn Stockett’s The Help after she left her home town of Atlanta (that host was A Cappella Books, owned by Frank Reiss). This video was shot before we purchased our High Definition camera we used for Pat Conroy and Fannie Flagg (check our Facebook page) but you can still enjoy seeing and hearing the author reading the Mississippi ladies’ parts and her best friend, Octavia Spencer representing “The Help”. Yes, the very same Octavia Spencer who stars in the movie as “Minny”.
All who attended our “Coming Out Party”, as well as all members of our Signed First Editions Club paid $24.95 for their signed first edition which is now going in some places a little north of a cool grand. Enjoy this video and make yourself a promise to try and catch the next reading of an exciting literary visitor to Birmingham.

Rick Bragg in the Movies
Purchase the DVD of Alabama’s Rick Bragg: Out of the Dirt, including much bonus footage not seen in the original documentary.
Listen in on distinguished Alabamaians, local friends and family tell inside tales on Rick as a child and award-winning best-selling author. Rick also gives his life’s philosophy in many scenes. Find out about his mother’s poetry; hear his aunt tell of dressing him as a girl when he was a tot. If ever there was a priceless gift, this is it.
You may order the two DVD (22.95) set through our secure, encrypted link Here
