Milk & Sugar: The Complete Book of Seersucker

Bill Haltom’s definitive guide to the quintessential Southern fabric covers all things seersucker. From the origins and history of the seersucker suit to the many different ways, places, and reasons people wear it, Milk & Sugar has it all. Haltom dives into traditional ways to wear the puckered fabric as well as the unconventional styles of today. Along the way, he also chronicles the celebrities, politicians, and average people who champion seersucker fashions. There’s something for everyone — longtime fans as well as newbies will enjoy Haltom’s anecdotes and history lessons, and that doesn’t exclude the ladies (an entire chapter is devoted to ladies who’ve made seersucker their own).

Pre-orders will be shipped one week prior to official release (March 26)

As you have no doubt noticed, the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces and the leader of the free world is a former reality TV show star. 

President Trump is not the first celebrity to become the President of the United States.  Hollywood movie and TV star Ronald Reagan served as our President from 1981 to 1989.  But he did not go immediately from the set of Bedtime for Bonzo to the Oval Office. In between he served two terms as Governor of California.  But the former star of the Apprentice is our first President to go directly from hosting a TV show to giving an inaugural address.

The Other Fellow May Be Right: The Civility of Howard Baker
The Other Fellow May Be Right: The Civility of Howard Baker

A tribute to the late Senator Howard Baker, a great leader whose civility brought adversaries together to find solutions to our nation's problems.

Consequently, public governance has become dysfunctional. Senator Baker's civil life remains a model of what our leaders could accomplish by always reminding themselves that the other fellow may be right!
