March 22-24, 2012

Oxford, Mississippi


The 2012 Oxford Conference for the Book is the 19th annual event to celebrate books, reading, and writing while also examining the practical concerns on which the literary arts and the humanities depend, including literacy, freedom of expression, and the state of publishing.

On Saturday, at 2:00 p.m., there will be a panel, "Cornbread Nation: Making Sense of the South by Way of Food" with our fearless leader, John T. Edge, as the moderator. Brett Anderson, Randy Fertel, and Kim Severson are the panelists. You can attend the panel at Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics on the campus of the University of Mississippi.
