The Abolitionist’s Daughter @ Posman Books
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan

The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

Books & Booze: The Changeling

City Winery Atlanta

Ponce City Market’s Posman Books and The City Winery have teamed up to put a new spin on the term “book club.” Literature lovers can purchase their copy of the month’s selection today from Posman Books and later bring it to Atlanta’s urban winery on August 20th, 7 pm – 9 pm, to enjoy a spirited discussion among fellow readers. Posman Books’ General Manager Marc Stiles will host.

This month’s selection is modern horror classic The Changeling by Victor Lavalle. Like the best horror it uses genre tropes to dig into the muck that lies beneath society’s veneer. Apollo Kagwa has always led a … let’s say … tense existence as one of New York City’s only black book dealers. (It’s hard to concentrate on buying antique books when the nice suburban couple won’t let you use their bathroom, and the neighbors are watching your every move.) But Apollo thinks he’s stumbled into a perfect life when he marries librarian Emma Valentine and the two start a family. As baby Brian grows, Emma begins acting stranger and stranger, and Apollo starts finding increasingly unsettling photos on his phone. When a drastic action on Emma’s part breaks the family’s lives open, Apollo finds himself living in a terrifying fairy tale, fighting his way through secret islands, haunted woodlands, and a terrifying, mythical New York, all to try to win his wife and son back. The story examines race, class, true love, romance, revenge—all the good stuff—all while staying true to its horror roots.

May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

PCM Community Farmers Market

The Shed

Located under “The Shed” on the BeltLine entrance of Ponce City Market, the Ponce City Farmers Market  is the only farmers market in Georgia primarily attended by pedestrians and cyclists. The market is held seasonally on Tuesday evenings, and hosts some of Atlanta’s finest local food talent, including urban farmers, artisanal food makers, as well as pop-up chefs.nOur market is a producer-only market, meaning that vendors sell only products that they grow or produce themselves. Our farmers use organic practices (some going even beyond organic) to help steward the earth while producing the freshest and most nutritious food available in Georgia. Look for veggies and fruits, pasture-raised eggs and meats, alongside artisanal food vendors and natural beauty-care vendors.

We encourage shoppers to access the market by walking or biking on the Beltline or park at Ponce City Market. Parking is complimentary for farmers market shoppers in the lots in front of Mountain High Outfitters. Market shoppers can receive one hour of free parking in these lots by choosing zone 22200 and inputting the code FARMERS2018 in the Park Mobile app. This is only valid during market.

The Abolitionist’s Daughter @ Posman Books
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan
