Join us for discussion of My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South by Rick Bragg at 7 pm on April 26.
“…what I want to tell you about is Bragg’s newest book, My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South (Oxmoor House 2015). This is a collection of essays, many of which previously appeared in Southern Living magazine, about topics as far flung as raw oysters, Bear Bryant, tornadoes, the BP oil spill, roses, old aunts, mules (especially dead ones), home repairs, family—and yes, coleslaw. My Southern Journey is a book to own, cherish, and loan out only to those rare folks who can be trusted to actually return a book, and without coffee stains or dog-earned pages. And my Yankee husband, who read and enjoyed My Southern Journey, assures me one does not need to be from Alabama or the South to appreciate this book.” – Review by Clarie Matturro for Southern Literary Review
