Praise for In a Magnolia Minute: Secrets of a Late Bloomer


"Nan Graham is as Southern as black-eyed peas, scuppernong wine, she-crab soup, Crimson Tide tailgating and a dog with ticks. She is so relentlessly Southern she makes me feel that I was born in Minnesota and Bailey White in Ohio!"

~Pat Conroy, author of Beach Music and The Prince of Tides


"Make no mistake: Nan Graham doesn't forget anything...from her hilarious memory of a sex-ed class featuring dancing sperms wearing top hats and spats to her sweetly funny conversations with her young granddaughter to the miracle of Sydney, the potty-trained Persian, Nan hoards these moments like the last dish of banana pudding. Now, lucky for us, she's willing to share. In a Magnolia Minute is delicious!"

~Celia Rivenbark, author of We're Just Like You, Only Prettier and Bless Your Heart, Tramp


"Nan Graham's writing is so authentic and irresistible that it makes you wish you were a belle. Indeed, she is a magnolia of the first order and takes her rightful place among the south's most exciting storytellers...Bravo, honeychile!"

~Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Shem Creek and Sullivan's Island


"The whole South is her oyster..."

~Ben Windham, Tuscaloosa (AL) News




Praise for Turn South at the Next Magnolia


"In Turn South at the Next Magnolia, Nan Graham has managed to capture "live" many of the nooks and crannies of everyday life in the south of yesterday as well as of today-family, food, fun and more-that keeps insiders as well as outsiders fascinated with this place we call home."

~Clyde Edgerton, author of Lunch at the Piccadilly and Where Trouble Sleeps


"I thoroughly enjoyed [Nan Graham's] stories."

~Bailey White, author of Quite a Year for Plums and Sleeping at the Starlite Motel


"Bright, witty and warm..."

~St Petersburg Times


"Turn South at the Next Magnolia" is a collection of stories to savor."

~Winston-Salem Journal


"I love to hear a writer read her own work. I've been listening to her book on tape in the car. And it's charming. Ya'll have to hear Nan Graham."

~Susan Swagler, Birmingham News


[These] Southern stories have various and diversified flavors. Some pieces are sweet, some are sour, some are chilly, but all are delicious."

~North Carolina Libraries
