The NewSouth Bookstore actively hosts bookstore and off-site literary programs — book talks and readings — along with a variety of other programs both entertaining and educational. These include presentations by historians, readings of plays, music events, and community service programs. We enjoy such gatherings quite a lot. Our bookstore events calendar is always evolving, so please regularly check back here for updates to our calendar (and/or follow us on social media, where all such activities are also posted). We welcome your event suggestions and thank you for your support.
We are delighted to bring Frye Gaillard, dear friend and author many times published by NewSouth Books, to The NewSouth Bookstore for a talk about A Hard Rain: America in the 1960s, on the release of its paperback edition. Join us for this special event on Thursday, March 21 at 5:30pm. Gaillard is a talented journalist and author with over thirty published books. His A Hard Rain is considered by many to be his masterwork. The book seamlessly blends history and memoir as he vividly recalls the many historic events that made the decade so tumultuous, so significant, so memorable. There is no better guide to it than Frye Gaillard. His book is “essential reading” (Howell Raines).
