Mississippi Reads is a state wide project designed to encourage reading among all Mississippians by highlighting a Mississippi author each year. The Southern Book Club will join libraries, schools, and other book clubs in reading the first book for Mississippi Reads, Go Down Moses by William Faulkner.
Go Down Moses was originally published in 1942 and is made up of seven short stories following the history of the McCaslin family spanning over a century in the fictional Mississippi county Yoknapatawph.
Mississippi Reads is inspired by the popular One Book movement which attempts to connect people through literature. The book for 2008 is Richard Wright’s Uncle Tom’s Children to celebrate his centennial. Eudora Welty’s Collected Stories is the book for 2009 in celebration of her centennial. For more information about Mississippi Reads visit the website www.mississippireads.org and make your plans to join with the SCHF in celebrating some of Mississippi’s extraordinary writers.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the Southern Book Club will meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
There is no fee to attend and it is open to the public.
The group focuses on Southern authors and subjects, but is open to any good read. Book and author suggestions are welcomed.
For November, the Southern Book Club will discuss Go Down Moses by William Faulkner at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 28.
