Frances Mayes has created a lyrical and evocative memoir about coming of age in the Deep South, and the region’s powerful influence on her life. The author of Under the Tuscan Sun revisits the turning points that defined her early years in Fitzgerald, Georgia. With her signature style and grace, Mayes explores the power of landscape, the idea of home, and the lasting force of a chaotic and loving family in Under Magnolia: A Southern Memoir ($26.00).

As part of this special event, The Spinster Sisters will serve a one-night-only, Tuscan- inspired menu.
