LOUISIANA BOOK FESTIVAL FEATURED AUTHOR: SOUTHERN LIVING’S RICK BRAGG

Author and Southern Living writer Rick Bragg is a featured author at the 2012 Louisiana Book Festival. Bragg will discuss Southern Journal, a piece he writes for each edition of Southern Living that covers any and everything Southern, from football to food to Fairhope roses.

Bragg grew up in rural northeastern Alabama. His Southern Journal entries often revolve around a personal story he shares to explain some intricacy of Southern life. Until 2003, Bragg was a correspondent for The New York Times. He is a Pulitzer Prize winner for his sophisticated stories about modern America.

Bragg is the author of five books and teaches journalism at the University of Alabama.

The 2012 Louisiana Book Festival is Saturday, October 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Listen to and interact with Rick Bragg and more than 145 other authors. For more information on the authors featured at this year’s festival, visit www.LouisianaBookFestival.org.
