Announcing the 2019 Spring Okra Picks

Posted By Nicki Leone, Monday, April 1, 2019

The onset of spring means extra hours of daylight which means more time to read! Southern independent booksellers have collected a reading list that will keep those extra hours filled: the 2019 Spring Okra Picks – a collection of the best forthcoming Southern books of the season. Every book on the list has these things in common: they are Southern in nature, they release sometime between April and June, and they have a following among Southern indie booksellers, who can’t wait to introduce them to new readers.

Stay up a little bit later and read. Put a pile of Okra Picks by your bed.
