Fall reading, what your favorite book says about you, an illustration of a chance meeting with Faulkner. North Carolina's new poet laureate on video. Inside the App for F. Scott Fitzgerald Weekend. Poetry readings, a literary murder mystery dinner in Alabama, book fests galore in Literary Events. And a pair of works about redemption in Southern Voice. Happy Literary Friday!
