Last week, 200-plus authors were in town for the Southern Festival of Books. This week, the number of visiting writers is down to six, but what a list.

Native Memphian Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and now Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West, will be at Davis-Kidd Booksellers on Tuesday. Read what Sides has to say on page 40 of this week's Flyer. Hear what Mitch Albom (Tuesdays With Morrie) has to say when Albom reads from and signs his latest, a novel, For One More Day, at the Church of the Holy Communion on Wednesday, October 25th, at 11:15 a.m.

One more day? Try 20 years -- of marriage. Steve Doocy, co-host of Fox & Friends on the Fox News Network, has tried it, and he's happy to tell you about it in The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook: Everything I Know About Love and Marriage. Doocy will be at Davis-Kidd on Friday at 6 p.m.

And speaking of Fox, "Sister" Jane Arnold may be master of the foxhunt, but she's on the trail of murder and mayhem (again) in Rita Mae Brown's The Hounds and the Fury, which Brown will be signing at Davis-Kidd on Monday at 6 p.m.

Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain was a surprise bestseller and National Book Award winner. Ten years later, he's again in the 19th-century South with Thirteen Moons. Frazier will be signing at Burke's Book Store on Thursday at 7 p.m., which shouldn't prevent you, earlier the same night, from meeting Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker, Moneyball, and now The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. The topic is the gridiron, but the focus is left tackle (and Memphian) Michael Oher, who plays for Ole Miss. You may have recently read some of this story in The New York Times Magazine. Now read the whole story in The Blind Side. Lewis will be at Davis-Kidd on Thursday at 6 p.m.
