I’m headed to South Carolina in a few weeks. I am attending a bachelorette weekend in Folly Beach, where I have never been. I’ve never been to South Carolina at all so I am very excited. We fly into Charleston and hopefully we’ll spend a day there, too. Obviously, Hurricane Dorian has been something to keep an eye on and luckily, he passed SC. However, that has me thinking about Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward, a novel about a family preparing for Hurricane Katrina. I read Salvage the Bones a few years ago and don’t fully remember the details but like the rest of her books, I know I liked it. I did a quick search on other hurricane topic books to see if there was anything else interesting out there.
Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson and Zeitoun by Dave Eggers are both hurricane related and look worth a read so I requested them from the library. Although! I am banned from checking out again! I swear I returned those two books! In addition, Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings has been sitting on my kindle for years. It takes place in Charleston and will definitely be my airplane read.
Any other South Carolina recommendations for me?
