Sometimes it takes a village. And that village needs a storyteller. Some of the best Southern writing illuminates place and people; three veteran writers talk about their experiences in writing about communities. Karen Cox, in Goat Castle, investigates a murder and its effect on an entire town; Sara Ann Harris shows us a different side of Louisiana culture in Dance Halls of Spanish Louisiana, and Adrienne Berard, in Water Tossing Boulders, chronicles the struggle of Chinese immigrants to desegregate schools in the Mississippi Delta. Moderated by documentary filmmaker Kevin McCaffrey.
