SUMMARY OF NEW EYBD PREVIEWS
Since there are so many new books this month (and for the next few months as evidenced by my Fall preview post), I’m simply going to provide you with a brief blurb about these previewed titles and share any events, EYBD previews or giveaways that are currently available.

Cooking South of the Clouds: Recipes and Stories from China’s Yunnan Province by Georgia Freedman has me as gobsmacked as I was/am about Carolyn Phillips’ All Under Heaven. Georgia has woven together the perfect tapestry of story-telling, recipes and photographs (by Josh Wand) that bring the Yunnan Province to life. I plan on spending a great deal of time with this stunning book this weekend.
