If they wanted to, Cape Girardeau's numerous book clubs could concentrate solely on local authors this month with the publication of new books by Southeast Missourian food columnist Tom Harte and nationally syndicated political columnist and author David Limbaugh.
This is the first book by Harte, a professor emeritus of speech at Southeast and host of "Caffe Concerto," a classical music program on Southeast Public Radio. The affable Harte also hosts a weekly cooking show called "A Harte Appetite" and co-hosts "Going Public," a public-affairs program.
"Stirring Words" is a collection of Harte's food essays and recipes that previously appeared in the Southeast Missourian.
The book will be published Oct. 1 by the Southeast Missouri State University Press.
Limbaugh's book, his third, already is on the shelves. Titled "Bankrupt: The Intellectual and Moral Bankruptcy of Today's Democratic Party," the book not coincidentally is being published just before November's midterm elections.
The book is not a collection of Limbaugh's newspaper columns but rather a 448-page broadside against the Democratic national leadership.
The book will open up at No. 12 on the New York Times best-seller list next week.
Limbaugh's previous books are "Absolute Power," which chronicles alleged abuses during Bill Clinton's presidency and Janet Reno's tenure at the Department of Justice, and "Persecution," a book about Christianity and modern politics.
