Author Cassandra King returns to South Walton with a new book

Published: Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 11:08 AM.

In the forward, after establishing himself as an ordinary Southern man in contrast to a gentleman, Bragg compares his own background to Cassandra’s and the truth of Cassandra’s book: being a failed Southern Belle is what makes a real Southern lady. The book follows with seven simple yet profound guides for living an authentic and generous life.

King has been married for 16 years to famed novelist Pat Conroy, and they live on the South Carolina coast.

King admits she was in awe of her already-famous husband when they first met, but they were friends for two years before he asked her out.

She does not get down to the Gulf beaches as much as she would like, said King, although she has a sister living near Dothan , but she does welcome the opportunity when she does.

King will have that opportunity Saturday when The Hidden Lantern at Rosemary Beach hosts her for a talk and book signing from 10 a.m. to noon.

This “sweet” book is a gem of wisdom and a gift for people young or old, said Bragg.
