Never a Belle: Southern Women Writers

Location, location … and the people that live in and act upon it. What would stories be without them? Where would readers be without the Southern writers to deliver those images and voices to them! Erskine Caldwell said as much when he credited the southern tradition of oral story telling wherein every little incident can be the germ of a story to be written. And who better to tell a story than a woman who, by social position, if not by nature, is a listener. Starting with an overview and a few poems, participants will read and explore short stories by Kingsolver, Welty, Hurston, Smith and Chopin.

Dates and locations to be announced.
