Winchester, Va. -- less than two hours from D.C.-- is the home of country music superstar Patsy Cline. It's also the setting of "Homeplace: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk."
The summer is already sweltering, and we’ve got book suggestions for anyone looking for good reads fit for lazy days. A slew of debut novels are creating buzz, and if hardcovers are too much of a lift for your beach bag, there are great titles just out in paperback, too. Prefer non-fiction? We have you covered with memoirs and biographies. Join us for our annual Summer Reading show.
