Southern literature (sometimes called the literature of the American South) is defined as American literature about the Southern United States or by writers from this region. Characteristics of Southern literature include a focus on a common Southern history, the significance of family, a sense of community and one’s role within it, a sense of justice, the region's dominant religion (Christianity) and the burdens/rewards religion often brings, issues of racial tension, land and the promise it brings, a sense of social class and place, and the use of the Southern dialect.

[close] Whether you prefer Faulkner, O'Connor, McCullers or more recent authors of Southern Literature such as Clyde Edgerton, Tom Franklin, William Gay, or Mark Childress, this is the place for you. We will have group reads of two book per month. Group reads will be based on member nominations and polls. While this group is not for adults only, I encourage our younger members to be old enough to attend R rated movies without accompaniment by an adult. The topics for discussion here are meant for mature audiences.
