Literary Events Explore Southern Authors and Themes this March

Welcome back from what was – hopefully – a wonderful and restful spring break. The second half of the spring semester is full of wonderful opportunities for those who are interested in literature and southern authors.

March 29th, author Thomas Mullen will speak about his book Darktown at both the Clarkston and Decatur campuses of Georgia State University, Perimeter College, as part of the Susan Thomas Lectureship.

Additionally, a host of notable southern authors such as Nathasha Trethewey will be discussing literary works rooted in the south during Revival–Lost Southern Voices – a two day event on March 31 & April 1 on the Dunwoody campus.

With multiple locations and speakers there’s a little something for everyone.
