Local author to bring her latest books to Yawn’s

Kathi Harper Hill has lived in the Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia all her life. She says Appalachia is her first language, English being her second.

 

She’ll be at Yawn’s Bookstore Friday, Nov. 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to introduce three of her new books, as well as two previous books publishing by Yawn’s Publishing.

 

The Christmas Closet and Other Works (Cover Illustrated by David Hill) — The stories in this book will entertain you this holiday season.  It’s a tiny package that contains a big punch.

 

Out On A Limb of the Family Tree  — This book is about a way of life that is fast disappearing in to the modern world of common language…little or no accents and a motto of “hurry, hurry, hurry!” The book is mostly fictional, interwoven with true stories the author collected over a period of years from family and friends.

 

Signs From God  — This book is about facing challenges and making decisions that are not only right, but putting someone else’s life before your own. Done with humor and insight into human emotions and struggles, this book will keep you up wanting to read “just one more chapter.”

 

These books plus the Christian Fiction Romance young adult novel Falling and the Georgia Author of the Year 1st Runner-Up The Crow in the Wind will be available at the book signing.


September thru December Book Club Picks

Join Yawn’s Books & More the fourth Thursday every month to discuss our Book Club picks. Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be served.

September

Once a month on a Monday night, eight students gather in Lillian’s restaurant for a cooking class. Among them is Claire, a young woman coming to terms with her new identity as a mother; Tom, a lawyer whose life has been overturned by loss; Antonia, an Italian kitchen designer adapting to life in America; and Carl and Helen, a long-married couple whose union contains surprises the rest of the class would never suspect.

The students have come to learn the art behind Lillian’s soulful dishes, but it soon becomes clear that each seeks a recipes for something beyond the kitchen. And, one by one, they are transformed by the aromas, flavors, and textures of what they create…

Join Yawn’s Thursday, September 27 at 6 p.m. to discuss the book by Erica Bauermeister.

October

 

The hill people and the Mexicans arrived on the same day. It was a Wednesday, early in September 1952. The Cardinals were five games behind the Dodgers with three weeks to go, and the season looked hopeless. The cotton, however, was waist-high to my father, over my head, and he and my grandfather could be heard before supper whispering words that were seldom heard. It could be a “good crop.” A moving story of one boy’s journey from innocence to experience.

Join Yawn’s Thursday, October 25 at 6 p.m. to discuss the book by John Grisham.

 

 

 

November

 

Their husbands were gone, their families were grown, and the future stretched out before them like an unfulfilled promise…

Tired of always dreaming and never doing, Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget make a life-altering decision. Uprooting themselves from their comfortable lives in the suburbs, the three friends buy a run-down mansion, nestled in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley. They christen their new home “Ladybug Farm,” hoping that the name will bring them luck.

Join Yawn’s at a TBD date to discuss the book by Donna Ball.

 

 

 

December

When Catherine Dornan’s husband, Tom, is diagnosed with leukemia, she and their two young sons travel with him to New York during the holiday season for a lifesaving operation. On Christmas Eve, hoping to lift the boys’ spirits, Catherine takes them to see Rockefeller Center’s famous Christmas tree; while there, seven-year-old Brian notices a woman taking his mother’s wallet.

A St. Christopher medal tucked inside the wallet saved his grandfather’s life in World War II, and Brian believes with all his heart that it will protect his father now. Impulsively, Brian follows the thief into the subway, and the most dangerous adventure of his young life begins. . . .

Join Yawn’s at a TBD date to discuss the book by Mary Higgins Clark.

 

 

Find out about the ‘Mystery of the Trees’ Oct. 13

Don and Diane Wells, authors of “Mystery of the Trees: Native American Markers of a Culture Way of Life that Soon may be Gone,” cover six years of work in documenting a part of the cultural heritage of the American Indians that is rapidly disappearing.

 

After completing a 28-year career in the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps and a 10 year career in a private engineering consulting firm, Don and his wife Diane retired to North Georgia in 2000 where they build their home as a Christian retreat center. In 2007, the Mountain Stewards launched, in conjunction with others, the National Trail Tree Project to locate, document and preserve Trail Trees which are part of the heritage of Native Americans. Part of Don’s heritage is Lenape Indian.

 

“’Mystery of the Trees’ is filled with fascinating local history, which has remained below the radar for years. Descriptions and pictures of the authors’ finding fill the pages of the book,” said Michelle Weyenberg, an employee at Yawn’s Bookstore. “Readers will be interested to find out about artifacts and sacred sites that are basically in the backyards of Cherokee County.”
