Revival: Lost Southern Voices

March 31 @ 1:15 pm - 9:00 pm

Revival: Lost Southern Voices

Georgia_State_University_flame_logoThe South has produced great literature for generations, but times change and works are forgotten. This project celebrates forgotten and underappreciated works and their authors—lost southern voices. Over two days, Georgia State University will host authors such as Natasha Trethewey, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Terry Kay will share their favorite “lost” literature.

This event is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
