Come see us at the mississippi book festival

Ryan and I will be at the Mississippi Book Festival on Saturday, Aug. 20. It’s our favorite event of the year, and a great time to hear from the smartest and most influential writers in Mississippi and the nation. The last time we were there in person, in 2019, we got to hear Salman Rushdie and Jesmyn Ward speak, just to name a couple.

I will be a panelist on “Decidedly Southern” in State Capitol room 204 from 2:45-3:45 PM. We have a great panel that includes these authors:

Patrick Dean – A Window to Heaven: The Daring First Ascent of Denali: America’s Wildest Peak (Moderator)

Chris McLaughlin – Mississippi Barking: Hurricane Katrina and a Life that Went to the Dogs

Julie Hines Mabus – Confessions of a Southern Beauty Queen

Ty Pinkins – 23 Miles and Running

David Crews – Mississippi Book of Quotations

Afterward, at 4:15 PM, Ryan and I will be signing copies of Death Along the Natchez Trace in the signing tent. We look forward to seeing you there!
