Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 178 comments At the recent SCLA/SELA Conference (South Carolina Library Association - Southeast Library Association), there was a presentation on literary maps of the Carolinas.

The North Carolina literary map is very impressive, with educational resources and links to external tourism content. The South Carolina literary map is not really ready for primetime, but the ReadSC site has some great stuff.

This apparently branches off from the Library of Congress's The Center for the Book, but only 22 states have similar projects. Do you know of any others in the south?

Jenny, thanks for beginning such a great reference topic. Here's Alabama's Literary Map: http://alabamaliterarymap.lib.ua.edu/ . It is a useful site.

Dawn (goodreadscomdawn_irena) | 252 comments Jenny - check out Oxford , MS and our town's own Ole Miss University! We have art, music, literature , festivals, writers , The Faulkner Conference, The Conference for The Book! Many of these things are free unless you attend a special dinner or party to meet people. The Chamber of Commerce , the University of Mississippi, and our # 1 Independent Bookstore of this year , Square Books always knows what is happening and sponsors so much. They are remarkable ! William Faulkner 's Rowan Oak is open to the public here and Larry Brown just had a marker dedicated as one of the first markers on our Sourthern Literary Trail throughout our state along with others like William Faulkner's graveside marker and more . We are so blessed here in Oxford 's rich culture and unique people that have drawn life into their souls from this soil to be given blessings to create. Of course you are being humbly invited here by an Englsh Teacher of fifteen years who is still at work on at her MFA and probably will be as long as I can keep gathering money to finish finally all the way as a professor with confidence to let someone sneek a peek near my writing!!! LOL ! I hope this was helpful and if you need more answers just send a friend request. Sincerely, Dawn Copley
