Author signing: Nell Dickerson - Porch Dogs 

When: Mon., April 29, 6 p.m. 2013
Porch Dogs combines fine-art portraits of man's best friend with beautiful architectural documentation of the Southern porch. Nell Dickerson fondly recalls childhood nights on the sleeping porch of her grandparents' Mississippi Delta home but during the heat of the day, the family sought refuge indoors, leaving the dog to his lonely vigil. Years later, Dickerson noticed that few new homes had porches, their residents increasingly dependent on air conditioning. "We Southerners used to be social," she notes. "Now, we risk losing what makes us Southern: porch sitting. But there is hope. Our dogs maintain the tradition."
