My Asheville, NC Weekend Getaway is All Booked!
Every year, the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization, nominates a select number of books for their National Book Award. It is ultimately a celebration of American literature and exposes readers to a whole new world of books! Vox staff have already gone through and read the 25 nominated books, selecting their publication’s favorite. We have narrowed that list to the top three books to fill a weekend getaway—
- Zorrie by Laird Hunt
This slim book is the perfect item to just slip into your getaway bag. The story centers on a woman searching for her place in the world while living in rural Indiana. You’ll be able to feel connected to the novel’s setting as you sit out on the grassy fields that make up The Horse Shoe Farm.
- Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr
The Washington Post has called this a “superb novel!” Doerr weaves in the magic of childhood storytelling, nostalgia, and opposing timelines. You will be whisked away to whole new worlds and maybe even lose yourself.
- Tastes Like War: A Memoir by Grace M. Cho
Cho’s memoir explores how food and memory are linked. When you consume a dish during your weekend getaway, this book will make you stop and contemplate the history and trauma that went into the recipes’ creation. Her personal memories related to food are extremely telling of the immigrant experience in America.
