“Southern Things” Issue Launch, Thurs, Oct 26th at 5:30 pm
Join us at the Love House & Hutchins Forum as Southern Cultures quarterly celebrates its fall issue on Southern Things. We’re hosting a pop-up museum of haunted objects (those lived-in, well-worn, maybe nostalgic, maybe loathed things that just keep hanging around) and associated stories. Object owners include Heather & Phil Cook, Jen Wasner, Daniel Wallace, April McGreger, Alice Gerrard, and more.
This special issue was guest edited by Bernie Herman, and features essays on Mississippi’s Rhinestone Cowboy, West Virginia’s last broom maker, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s orange grove, North Carolina’s former mines, Louisiana’s Coushatta tribe, Charleston’s Jewish artifacts of the Confederacy, the Deep South’s penchant for Dutch ovens, and more!
This event is free and open to the public, but you can subscribe to Southern Cultures or view the journal via Project Muse here.
