This will be the second year that Maggie has hosted the Southern Reading Challenge. The objective is to read three books by Southern authors between May 15 and August 15.
I need to join another reading challenge like I need a hole in my head, but how can I resist a challenge that gives me both an excuse to issue dead mule alerts and a chance to win a tin of pecans?
I'll be selecting books from this pool:
The Grass Harp. Truman Capote
A Visitation of Spirits. Randall Kenan
On Agate Hill. Lee Smith
Thirteen Moons. Charles Frazier
Collected Stories. Ellen Gilchrist
Everything That Rises Must Converge. Flannery O'Connor
