THAT’S WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE SOUTH: A PANEL OF GREAT STORYTELLERS

Meet writers who both honor and push against traditional Southern norms of stories of place, race, faith and family. Novelist Michael Farris Smith writes about age-old family rivalries in a small town; M.O. Walsh crafts an unforgettable coming-of-age story with a twist; Martin Pousson chronicles the hard life of a young gay man; and Mary Miller offers stories of young women you probably recognize. Novelist Bev Marshall, a fine Southern storyteller herself, moderates this discussion of what makes Southern fiction so wonderfully Southern, and why it breaks your heart.
