DUNWOODY, Ga. — Georgia’s 2012 Poet Laureate Judson Mitcham and African-American literature scholar Trudier Harris will be among more than a dozen authors and poets gathering for the Revival: Lost Southern Voices literary event at Georgia State University’s Dunwoody Campus March 23-24.
Lost Southern Voices debuted in 2017 with authors and scholars celebrating forgotten and underappreciated Southern works and their authors.
The packed two-day schedule also includes Atlanta actor and playwright Brenda Bynum performing a play based on author Lillian Smith’s words and Jim Auchmutey, writer and former reporter for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, with an appreciation of Southern cookbook legend Henrietta Dull.
The festival is supported in part by a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
The event is free, but registration is requested. Meals are available for a charge. To register and find out more about the program, visit the Lost Southern Voices website.
