REVIEW: Emily Henry’s ‘Happy Place’ is the perfect read to start off your summer

Grace Lanham, Staff Writer May 31, 2023
Emily Henry never fails to exceed reader’s expectations, and her recent release, “Happy Place,” is no exception. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading all of Henry’s books, but “Happy Place” is the perfect follow-up to her three most recent romance titles, all of which I have read: “People We Meet On Vacation,” “Beach Read,” and “Book Lovers.” “Happy Place,” published on April 25, will find a new spot in all readers’ hearts.

A new school year with The Seahawk’s book club

Abigail Celoria, Culture Editor September 2, 2022

The novel Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson is the story of two estranged siblings who come back together after their mother dies.

BOOK CLUB: ‘Black Cake’ mixes together multiple themes for the perfect familial tale

Abigail Celoria, Culture Editor April 2, 2022
The Seahawk’s March book club pick “Black Cake” is a treat from start to finish. If you are looking for a novel that explores identity and complex family ties, “Black Cake” is for you. Folding a mother’s tragic past into the present lives of her children, this novel brilliantly discusses how our origins, known to us or not, shape our lives.

REVIEW: UNCW’s ‘The Tempest’ is a modern commentary on Shakespeare’s timelessness

Kiley Woods, Photography Editor February 19, 2022
This play was brought to life with modern costumes that relate heavily to each character’s personality and a simple set that depicts trees and vines in a way that makes them appear to be right out of a nightmare. The plot is hard to follow, and the dialogue is beyond comprehension, unless Shakespeare's language comes easily to you. This show ponders what it is like to be taken by fear itself. It is a commentary on the connections that are built between characters who have nothing in common other than their proximity to one another while stranded on an island, or perhaps they are just under the mystical island's control.

BOOK CLUB: ‘Over the Falls’ stresses the emotion in its rollercoaster journey

Abigail Celoria, Assistant Culture Editor February 2, 2022
The Seahawk’s January book club pick “Over the Falls” is the perfect book to cozy up with this cold month. If you are looking for an adventure-mystery-drama with a hard-hitting emotional center, “Over the Falls” is for you. A slightly disorganized but beautiful novel, its centrality on emotional ties—both those we harbor in anger and those we form in love—is its greatest strength.
