There are few places as blessed with the art of storytelling as the Deep South. Throughout generations, there’s been Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury. And while those tomes vary vastly, each author shares a profound fondness for this beloved region.
From the streets of Savannah to the ancient alleyways of New Orleans, book lovers will find another world within the borders of the southern states of Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. A world where Atticus Finch and antebellum homes are only the beginnings of a tour through the literary capitals of the Deep South.
