Get ready for the return of the Savannah Book Festival, taking place February 16-19 at venues across the city! Now in its 16th year, this annual Festival is one of the most highly regarded book festivals in the Country. The Festival presents an exciting opportunity to engage in civil conversation; interact with local, regional and national authors; and discover your next great read.
During the four-day weekend, attendees can look forward to addresses from wildly acclaimed headlining authors such as New York Times bestseller and former Navy Seal Sniper, Jack Carr, thriller writers Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, and Pulitzer Prize winner and biographer, David Maraniss.

Booklovers and aspiring authors alike  can explore author presentations in seven different venues around the three squares. The diverse lineup covers a vast variety of genres and topics. The day is replete with author discussions featuring Q&A sessions and book signings with over 40 gifted authors, some of whom are local celebrities such as Johnathan Scott Barrett, a seventh-generation Georgian who penned a new book on Southern culinary traditions, and Stacy Willingham, author of “All the Dangerous Things”, is UGA and SCAD graduate.
History buffs won’t want to miss Stacy Schiff’s Saturday talk on her latest book “The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams.” Festival Saturday also includes a scheduled conversation with Shelby Van Pelt, whose debut novel “Remarkably Bright Creatures,” is one of 2022’s biggest debut success stories.

Can’t Say NoA Reservation for Romance: Where to Dine on Valentine’s Day
We’re just three weeks away from Valentine’s Day, which means now’s the time to start planning for this yearly celebration of love. Savannah, with her ubiquitous Southern charm and picturesque beauty, is the perfect place to enjoy a lovely dinner with your paramour. The Hostess City is chocked full of romantic restaurants that would love to host you this Valentine’s Day. So, make your reservation at one of these enticing establishments soon. 
22 Square
Located inside the opulent Andaz Savannah hotel, 22 Square is an upscale eatery with a simple and sustainable approach to cooking. The seasonal menu features modern takes on Southern-inspired cuisine, made with the freshest locally-sourced ingredients. In addition to the artful dishes, 22 Square has a full service bar, offering craft cocktails to help you relax into romance this Valentine’s Day.
Alligator Soul
Alligator Soul is an excellent option for adventurous diners, often serving up exotic meats like antelope, ostrich and kangaroo. They offer a seasonal menu, ensuring that each dish is lovingly made farm-to-table. With its low lighting and thoughtful service, Alligator Soul has just the right ambiance for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. 
Ardsley Station
Specializing in approachable American Southern cuisine, Ardsley Station is another fine choice that is sure to impress your Valentine. They offer intimate indoor seating as well as spacious outdoor seating, should the holiday come with warm weather this year. Enhance your experience with a craft cocktail or wine pairing, and take advantage of their twice-daily happy hour specials. 
Italian is always a great choice for Valentine’s Day, affording you a special opportunity to recreate your own “Lady and the Tramp” scene over a shared plate of spaghetti. Pacci invites you to ‘ciao down’ on their flavorful Italian cuisine. Treat your date to a delicious meal with expertly-matched craft cocktails and wines. It’ll be a night to remember.
Sitting on the southwest corner of City Market, you’ll find Belford’s, a welcoming restaurant known for its seafood and steaks. Their award-winning surf-and-turf menu has something for everyone. And what says love like a juicy filet mignon or some aphrodisiac oysters? You can dine inside or sit on the patio to hear live music from the market. It’s a recipe for romance. 
Lulu’s Chocolate Bar
Save room for dessert and satisfy your sweetie’s sweet tooth at Lulu’s Chocolate Bar. The intimate, low-light interior will set the mood while you enjoy decadent desserts. From time to time, Lulu’s will host live musicians, which further adds to the amorous atmosphere. 
The GlowHealthy Skin from the Inside Out
When it comes to skin care, most people use a topical approach. Most routines have serums and moisturizers, lotions and creams, and while these are all good, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t consider your nutrition. We watch what we eat when we want to have a healthy weight, strong bones and a healthy heart among other things. The same applies when it comes to your skin. A nutritious, well-balanced diet contributes to healthy skin in many ways. So, if you want to glow from the inside out, regularly incorporate these foods into your diet. 
Fatty Fish
Fatty fish like salmon, herring and tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats that promote heart health, but that’s not all. Omega-3s also promote a strong skin barrier, decreasing damaging inflammation and keeping skin supple and moisturized. Another benefit is that fish is high in selenium, which is a mineral and antioxidant that can reduce and prevent skin damage from UV rays.
Like fish, avocados are also rich in healthy fats that promote soft, springy skin. They’re also great sources of vitamins E and C, which are antioxidants that protect against sun damage and free radicals, which can age the skin. 
Dark Chocolate
Indulging in decadent dark chocolate doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure anymore. Studies confirm that the semi sweet treat can benefit the skin. Dark chocolate is high in flavanols and antioxidants that may slow skin aging. Eating dark chocolate with a high cocoa content and little added sugar can promote softer, more hydrated skin.  
Green Tea
Green tea is another antioxidant-rich option that stabilizes damage-causing free radicals. Green tea extract is commonly used in skincare products for its anti-aging properties. Additionally, studies have shown that drinking green tea reduces redness and roughness while retaining moisture and elasticity. 
Sweet Potatoes
Rich in beta carotene, sweet potatoes are another great option for healthy skin. Carotenoids are like a natural sunblock, protecting skin cells from sun exposure. Eating sweet potatoes may help prevent sunburn, dryness and wrinkles. Also, if you consume enough beta carotene, you may notice a warm, orange color to your skin, which can contribute to a healthier appearance.
