Beloved Southern Writer Reynolds Price Dies at 77

Price died January 20th following a heart attack.

Obituaties include those at the New York Times and the  Huffington Post, and National Public Radio.

Atlanta’s libraries own copies of Price’s novels and collections of his short stories, essays,  poetry, memors, and plays, as well as several biographies and collections of critical essays about Price’s work.

Many patrons and employees of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System’s staff remember with fondness Price’s appearance and reading at the Central Library several years ago.
