Byte-Size Blair | August 4

We’re back with Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

Last week was a big one. We said goodbye to a coworker, welcomed a new one, lost a friend and literary icon, and celebrated our state’s readers and writers.

1. Our beloved former publicist got married this weekend, but before she did, we made her our literary lady for Woman Crush Wednesday.

2. Louise Shivers, who wrote Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail, passed away last week. Read our goodbye here.

3. Billy Bowater by Redge Hanes is a must-read for the folks at Duke Magazine. The political satire is available now and we’ll be celebrating its launch at SECCA early next month!

4. This August, some of our favorite food books are 30% off. See what we’ve got cooking in our Kitchen Favorites!

5. Did y’all happen to see the great article in Shelf Awareness about the indie book business in North Carolina? Turns out our communities are thriving along with their independently-owned bookstores.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what we’ve been up to at Blair. This week, we’ll also be sending out our August newsletter so sign up to receive it in your inbox if you haven’t already.

(The worst part about saying goodbye to Trisina is saying goodbye to her adorable dog, Oatmeal! We expect many office visits from the both of them.)
