Pleased to add another George Scarbrough book to the collection. “Invitation to Kim” was a finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. The East Tennessee native produced three books between 1949-1956, which each contain some of the finest southern poetry I’ve read. “Invitation to Kim” is part of his later work and was published in 1989. I have posted his poem “Postcard Woodcut” here for a sampling of his work. Thank you to @thebookeddy for this copy, signed and inscribed in Fine condition. A rare hardback copy. #georgescarbrough #invitationtokim #pulitzerprize #irispress #rarebooks #firstedition #bookcollection #bookcollecting #bookcollection #bibliophile #bookporn #bookhunting #bookstagram #modernfirsts #modernfirsteditions #finebooks #signedbooks #shelfie #southernliterature #southernlit #tennessee #appalachianlit #appalachianliterature #kentucky #northcarolina #virginia #westvirginia #appalachianpoetry https://www.instagram.com/p/CP9OU7FsEzw/?utm_medium=tumblr

Lowcountry On My Mind dots all the i's and crosses all the t's when it comes t Southern fiction. Love the Palmetto Island series and can not wait for the next one to find out what is going to happen to my "book friends". Definitely Recommend.
