Southern Festival of Books

Another terrific Southern Festival of Books. Had the pleasure of hosting Robert Morgan, poet and novelist, who read from The Road from Gap Creek, sequel to his bestseller Gap Creek.

This a picture of me with Emily Choate, who noted that this was some world-class smirking. I also think we look like distant cousins at a family reunion who are being forced to hug each other.
