So excited that THE GUEST LIST by Lucy Foley was selected as a #ReesesBookClub pick for June! It's a story about a wedding celebration that turns dark and deadly—a deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie.

Reese Witherspoon Reese’s Book Club
William Morrow

The memoir “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness” by Austin Channing Brown is a personal narrative from a Black, Christian woman who takes us through what she experiences every day as Black person in America. This June pick is teaching me so much about how we perpetuate racism in our society. I still have so much to learn and want you to join me in having meaningful conversations, no matter how uncomfortable they may feel—it’s part of it.⠀

The ebook and audio editions are available now. Because of heightened demand, the physical book may be limited as retailers restock. Consider supporting black-owned booksellers by buying this book through Austin’s website: austinchanning.com.⠀

A very stormy seaside destination wedding is the back drop for this thrilling June book pick: “The Guest List” by Lucy Foley. Get ready for so many twists and turns as you try to figure out the who, what and when of this mystery. It reminds me of some of my favorite stories from Agatha Christie. You’ll be guessing all the way ‘til the end… and you’re in for a shocker!

In the meantime, if you’re in the mood for baking, this quick and easy recipe for the most DELICIOUS Irish Soda Bread might just be the thing you need tonight. (Or tomorrow, or the next day.) Take good care, friends. We’ll be in touch. Slainte Mhaith (‘Good health’ in Gaelic) Xox Virginia, Chris, and Lainey
For those who might have an interest, authors Camille DeMaio, Patricia V. Davis, Deborah Rodriguez.

In new novel, "Mollie's Follies," young, beautiful Mary Lynn Sharp, aka Mollie, is on the run, after a bitter childhood and having been cast into life without guidance. Forced to quit school, she has little money, and no support system; but, Mollie is traveling the USA Mainland alone. East Coast to West Coast and back again, this tall, thin teen is searching for compassion, love, and a place to call home. https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/bookshelf https://www.amazon.com/author/bonnie.mill-lemke
I love it when something I’ve researched turns up in unexpected places. Well that just happened on one of my favorite TV shows: Poldark. On Sunday’s night’s episode Ross Poldark is in the House of Commons and mentions that William Wilberforce was speaking against slavery. My ears perked up because in my new book BURIED LIVES: THE ENSLAVED PEOPLE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON’S MOUNT VERNON, I have a drawing of the slave ship Brookes. How does this connect to Poldark? In reality, when Wilberforce was arguing in Parliament for the abolition of slavery, he used a wooden model of the Brookes to show the cruelty of slavery. Ultimately slavery was abolished in Britain-and the slave ship Brookes played a part in it. Here is the link to see the actual model William Wilberforce used:
