The ‘Deen’ of Lean

Mama Deen should be proud.

Bobby Deen, less than two weeks since the release of his first solo cookbook, From Mama’s Table to Mine, spoke with guests at the Trustees’ Theater yesterday as part of the 2013 Savannah Book Festival.

“Everything I’ve gotten back [from readers] has been positive,” says Deen, whose cookbook tackles Southern recipes with a more health-conscious approach. “Probably the best indicator of how it’s doing is that it’s No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list in its category. That makes me very happy.”

Savannah Book Festival Highlights: Keynote with the Reigning King of Publishing, James Patterson

James Patterson is the top-selling writer of our era, with 260 million copies sold worldwide and a stronghold on the Guinness World Record for most hardcover fiction bestsellers—but he is unimpressed with these accolades. Instead, he’s more impressed that earlier in February he shot two hole-in-ones in the same week on the golf course. But in truth, Patterson got most excited when he talked about his efforts to get more kids reading, with his website ReadKiddoRead, which helps parents and educators select books that their children will love in order to spur a passion for reading at a young age. He shared that his own son was a reluctant reader until Patterson and his wife helped him discover ten books he loved one fateful, pre-adolescence summer.

The Wimpy Kid Heads to the South

Gen Fuller

With three live-actor films, seven books, and a giant balloon of the Wimpy Kid in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City, you don’t need to have children to recognize these “novels in cartoons.” Author-cartoonist Jeff Kinney made it to the New York Times Best-seller list in just two weeks after the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid in 2007. Since then his books have been translated into 35 languages in 36 countries, and are credited with sparking an increased interest in reading among young boys. His seventh book, The Third Wheel, had the largest first-run of any book in 2012 with 6.8 million copies.
Despite a busy schedule juggling movies, writing, book tours and even a day job, Kinney took a moment to speak to South about his upcoming appearance at the Savannah Book Festival.

Savannah Book Festival Honoree David Baldacci

David Baldacci’s novels have always turned pages, but next week he’ll be turning heads as one of the great modern masters of suspense and political and legal intrigue heads to the Hostess City for the 6th annual Savannah Book Festival.

A lawyer in the Washington, D.C., area for nine years before turning to writing full time, Baldacci will deliver next Sunday’s closing address, where he will talk about his 24th novel, The Forgotten, released last November.

A prolific writer, Baldacci will have a new novel out later this spring, The Hit. He’s also written the sixth and final installment in the 39 Clues series, titled Cahill vs. Vespers, Book 6: Day of Doom, scheduled to be released in March. And TNT has ordered a pilot featuring Baldacci’s detective characters King and Maxwell, who he introduced in his 2003 bestseller Split Second, starring Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romjin.

A week or so away from his visit to Savannah, Baldacci spoke with City Editor David Gignilliat from his office in Reston, Virginia in a revealing chat about being a wallflower, not missing his legal career and his lifelong passion for writing.

While 2012 has come to a close and 2013 is here, it doesn’t seem so long ago that we were just meeting some of the standout characters from South’s last 12 months.

According to judeo-christian tradition, it took the creator seven days to make the world, in Japanese culture there are seven lucky gods of good fortune, and Seven Wonders of the World entice travelers from all over. For South, seven is the lucky number for 2013.
