Clock Tower Books will feature “Palmetto Moon” by Kim Boykin during a Book Tails event from 5 to 7 p.m. on Fri., Aug. 15.
June, 1947. Charleston is poised to celebrate the biggest wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found.
Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn’t see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing – she sees it as a life sentence. So when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn’t want, she’s left with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully planned for her.
In Round O, SC, Vada finds independence in the unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For the first time in her life, she finally feels like she’s where she’s meant to be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have to confront the life she gave up – and decide where her heart truly belongs.
On Sat., Aug. 16 Barry Kelly will be at Clock Tower Books from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with his book, “Insights.”
Freedom is being lost, one small piece at a time. The process can be unnoticed until it is too late to reverse. The progressive strategy to transform America is being done one small bite at a time, but this is not a slow process. Destruction of the opposition is the first step in the building of a progressive mosaic where all decisions are made by a radical elite. The Republican Party is not mobilized for this struggle. They need help. When the transformation is completed, the game is over. The last ballot box will be in the progressive museum of “freedom lost.” The game is not over yet, but those who would fight to defend American freedom must begin now. The purpose of this book is to focus the attention of the American people on the stealthy bit-by-bit loss of their freedom and the American way of life. This way of life many of our people have fought to protect. Kelly has used insights gained by years during the Cold War struggle to pull the picture of the progressive building of the mosaic together so the evilness of their transformation of America can be clearly seen and defeated. Join the battle now.
Clock Tower Books is located at 105 Screven St., Georgetown.
