School starting in many locations across the country today got us thinking about those required reading lists. As an adult, you have a second chance to rediscover some of them - on your own time and with no pop quiz afterward.
Pics from our Mississippi booksignings road trip. Winners of If Jack's In Love. James Franco's As I Lay Dying filming in Mississippi. The trailer for Lawless. A Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Lots of bookish lists, literary events & new fiction in Southern Voice. Happy Literary Friday!
