Throughout the month of March 2009, eighteen towns in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi will present plays, movies, tours and discussion panels that explore the masterworks of U.S. Southern literature and honor the famous authors from their respective towns.
Visit the festival’s website for a schedule of events.
Meanwhile, you might want to read or re-read one of the books whose authors the Festival will be highlighting. – or read a biography about one of them. Georgia authors are: Margaret Mitchell and Joel Chandler Harris from Atlanta; Lillian Smith from Clatyon; Carson McCullers from Columbus; Flannery O’Connor and Alice Walker from Millegeville; and Erskine Caldwell from Moreland.
