Southern writers

Going back to this post, here's an excerpt from an essay by Flannery O'Connor.

And here's a link from Slate.com regarding Faulkner via Oprah's book club.

Finally, it's Banned Books Week. Be rebellious - let your kids read something someone doesn't want them to read.

It fills me with utter despair to see "To Kill a Mockingbird" on a banned books list.

I like the photo of O'Connor standing by what looks like a painting of her and a peacock. Interesting that she considers Poe a Southern author -- he lived a good part of his life in the North, including New York City, and did a lot of writing there. I'll never forget visiting his gravesite in Baltimore.

And if you want to see something chiling, go to this link (from Nels' link on banned books) to see more about recent book burnings:
