SouthWord Abridged 2021

November 5-6

Like a beloved shortened novel, SouthWord is going to be “abridged” this year, as a combination of noted authors and members of the Fellowship of Southern Writers come together for a virtual experience of panels and author talks. Authors include Natasha Trethewey, John Shelton Reed, Richard Bausch, George Singleton, Steve Yarbrough, Michel Stone, Daniel Wallace, and Karen Babine. Presented by Southern Lit Alliance this year’s SouthWord Abridged will be particularly special with the presentation of this year’s Local Distinguished Author Award.

The Festival is free, but donations are encouraged.
