Night Blooming Cereus

Lemuria, Jackson’s independent book store, has begun a book club devoted to Welty and invites the public to participate. The group meets monthly from 12 noon – 1 p.m. in the building adjacent to Banner Hall. The March 28 and April 25 gatherings will feature parts 1 and 2 of The Golden Apples. See the Lemuria Blog or contact for more information.

The Cereus Readers Books Club was created in honor of Welty and her friends who gathered for the annual blooming of the night-blooming cereus flower. Lemuria has also posted a Knowing Miss Welty blog with stories from people who knew Welty herself as well as those who admire her work. The bookstore has highlighted Welty in a promotion campaign entitled Miss Welty’s REAL Bookstore with posters and bookmarks.
