Jill Conner Browne will kick off the Big Ass Bus Tour today with her first stop, of course, at Lemuria. This is the "Sweet Potato Queen's First Big-Ass Novel: Stuff We Didn't Actually Do, But Could Have and Might Still Yet" written with Karin Gillespie.
I love it when a New York Times bestselling author kicks off her tour in Jackson, MS. That's loyalty there. I've read the book, and it was an enjoyable read. Very different from her non-fiction work. It will make a great beach read this summer, or just keep it by the tub for bubble baths. Jacksonians will recognize the characters and settings. Might remind you of people and places. As always, fattening recipes included.
And if the book doesn't do it for you, the bus will.
