The Regulator welcomes a return appearance from Rick Bragg, who will read from and discuss his new book, My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South. Keenly observed and written with his insightful and deadpan sense of humor, My Southern Journey explores enduring Southern truths about home, place, spirit, table, and the regions' varied geographies. Everything is explored, from regional obsessions on college football and fishing, to mayonnaise and spoonbread, to the simple beauty of a fish on the hook.
Collected from over a decade of his writing, with many never-before-published essays written specifically for this edition, My Southern Journey is an entertaining and engaging read, especially for Southerners (or those who feel Southern at heart) and anyone who appreciates great writing.
Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg is the author of numerous books, including All Over But the Shoutin’. He writes a regular column for Southern Living magazine and teaches at the University of Alabama.
