MISS JUANITA’S DELTA CUISINE


Juanita Emily Caldwell, who recently turned 98 years of age, has published her first book, a collection of recipes she has gathered over her years of living in Mississippi Delta towns and cities such as Greenville, Drew, Greenwood, and Hollandale. Her recipes, which she spent a lifetime collecting, represent Delta cuisine at its finest.

“Below the title, ‘Miss Juanita's Delta Cuisine,’ the book's cover is adorned with a picture of Miss Juanita Emily Caldwell in her younger days. Much like the cover, Miss Juanita's life, loves, and family are the focal point of this work, and she comes across as a lady who knows that good food is one of the greatest displays of affection there is . . . Miss Juanita is representative of many women of her era, and a kind of soul that will never die. Miss Juanita's favorite caramel pie is now my favorite as well, and, in that regard, a little piece of the Delta will live on.”—Kristen M. Hillman, New Orleans Review of Books

“Through ‘Miss Juanita’s Delta Cuisine,’ the author shares precious memories and photographs and more than 100 of her most-loved recipes—all of which were a lifetime in the making.”—Today in Mississippi

SELLING AMERICANS ON AMERICA by Gerry and Janet Souter


In recent years America has struggled to hang onto its democratic values. Shaken by a profound mistrust in government, a President under investigation, freedom of speech under attack, the rise of white nationalism, and thousands of refugees seeking asylum in America, the fabric of American society is barely holding together. Compounding those problems are economic inequality, a loss of common civility, and a failure to provide for the needs of returning warriors.

 

“Selling Americans on America” tells of another turbulent era—Post World War II— when a phenomenon called the “Freedom Train” reignited citizens’ faith in a country that was then riddled with dissent, anxiety and mistrust in the country’s leadership. The train traveled America with 130 priceless documents including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Emancipation Proclamation. Combined with a media blitz of songs, operettas, radio shows, and local festivities, the train reminded Americans that “Freedom is Everybody’s Job.”
