The Southern Literary Trail is the first tri-state literary trail in the United States. 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.

“My grandmother was said to have talked herself to death. Convalescing from a fever, she had defied the doctors and gone right on talking.”
