Southern Festival of Books
Have you picked out who you’re going to see at the Southern Festival of Books October 13-15?
The festival is free and open to the public, and sessions take place at the Main Library and War Memorial Auditorium.
Festival mainstays, always worth seeing
Rick Bragg: on his new book of essays My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South on Saturday from 3:30-4:30 at War Memorial.
If you’re a fan of short stories...
...you’ll want to see Tim Gautreaux on Saturday (12:00-1:00 in NPL Conference Room 1A).
Then Michael Knight, who wrote one of my favorite short story collections of this year, Eveningland, serves on two short story panels:
- Library of American presents “Peter Taylor: Collected Stories”, Saturday, 10:00-11:00, NPL Commons
- Finding the Key of Emotion: The Art of the Short Story, Saturday, 2:00-3:30, NPL Children’s Program Room
