It celebrates acclaimed 20th century writers and playwrights of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia and leads you on a journey of discovery to the places that shaped and inspired them. The Trail is a non-stop literary celebration with events, programs, and exhibits taking place at Trail sites throughout the year.

Portrait of William Bradford Huie

“The dream which built America was the dream of a land where every man could believe what he wanted to believe and advocate what he wanted to advocate, and still be safe from the anger of those who disagreed.”

William Bradford Huie, from a speech by the character Peter Garth Lafavor in Mud on the Stars
