Michael Connors: British West Indies Style
Breathtaking photographs capture the history and unique design of the English island great houses, detailing the hardwood furniture, terraced gardens, walled courtyards, and interiors. Perhaps the most admired and influential of tropical styles, the English island style transformed residences into private paradises. British West Indies Style is a lavish account of the interiors, architecture, and lifestyle of the English colonial great houses and historic town houses in the Caribbean — from Antigua, Jamaica, Nevis, Barbados, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts, Mustique to the less-traveled islands of Bequia and Dominica. Close to fifty private homes are featured, with unique collections of antique, indigenous, and colonial furniture: a southern plantation style scaled and refreshingly adapted to the airy, sunny climate of the Windward and Leeward Islands. Presenting a world rarely seen by visitors — the homes of the islands’ affluent planters, both historical and contemporary — the English island styles are elegant yet practical and accessible, giving ideas for the use of local materials, painting and stenciling techniques, environment-enhancing design, and indoor/outdoor living, all of which are ubiquitous in contemporary interior design.

Michael Bernath: Confederate Minds
During the Civil War, Confederates fought for much more than their political independence. They also fought to prove the distinctiveness of the Southern people and to legitimate their desire for a separate national existence through the creation of a uniquely Southern literature and culture. In Confederate Minds, Michael Bernath follows the activities of a group of Southern writers, thinkers, editors, publishers, educators, and ministers, whom he labels Confederate cultural nationalists, in order to trace the rise and fall of a cultural movement dedicated to liberating the South from its longtime dependence on Northern books, periodicals, and teachers. This struggle for Confederate “intellectual independence” was seen as a vital part of the larger war effort. For the Southern nationalists, independence won on the battlefield would be meaningless as long as Southerners remained in a state of cultural “vassalage” to their enemy. As new Confederate publications appeared at a surprising rate and Southerners took steps toward establishing their own system of education, cultural nationalists believed they saw the Confederacy coalescing into a true nation. Ultimately, however, Confederates proved no more able to win their intellectual independence than their political freedom. By analyzing the motives driving the struggle for Confederate intellectual independence, by charting its wartime accomplishments, and by assessing its failures, Bernath makes provocative arguments about the nature of Confederate nationalism, life within the Confederacy, and the perception of Southern cultural distinctiveness. Meet the author at Books And Books, 265 Aragon at 8pm. Call 305-442-4408.

She guides you across a bridge that joins the worlds of physical and non-physical reality. Through her work as an international speaker and intuitive, Louise Hauck takes readers and clients to a loving place within themselves, where the timeless soul resides. A place beyond the illusion of time and death. Her insightful guidance minimizes the fear that inhibits and constricts today’s world. Louise cautions that decisions and choices made in fear are neither wise nor divinely inspired. In Louise’s third book, Fearless Future, A Map Through An Uncertain Present, her trademark illuminating style convinces us that we can all access our true, multi-sensory and multi-dimensional selves. In this deeply personal journal, Louise takes us to a more authentic place where intuition expands and enables us to receive and interpret new dimensional symbols and images, unchallenged by our usual linear perceptions. Moving beyond the censorship of the rational mind, Louise guides us to our greatest future, no longer impeded by our past. Ultimately, this journey will support greater integrity and reveal our more authentic self. In the way that Louise’s work as a visionary and intuitive “time-traveler” entertains audiences, enlightens clients and empowers her apprentices around the world, Fearless Future, A Map Through An Uncertain Present will awaken your emerging greater self. You will step out of self-doubt and fear and into to a more enlightened future for humanity.
