Back in L.A. Again
Next stop: ATL.
I am thrilled to be back in Los Angeles Review of Books today, talking to my friend Tom Zoellner about THE ROAD TO UNFORGETTING. Tom is a terrifically gifted and profound writer, and a dear friend whose work has taught me so much about this country, and about how to move through it. A Deeper South really owes its current form to Tom, who is responsible for giving my work a home in LARB, and for encouraging the trip that relaunched our Southern tours in 2018. So it’s a real delight to be able to share a virtual table with a good friend I respect so deeply.
In other news, I will be back in my hometown on May 7th at 2:00 for a talk at The Atlanta History Center. NGL, as the kids say: this is kind of a huge deal for me. I believe specific places give rise to specific thoughts and ideas, which is why this is going to be a very special event for me. That corner of West Paces and Andrews Drive and I have a long history. It’s literally a return to home turf, and I’ll be talking about things I will not be talking about anywhere else. Come on out to McElreath Hall on Sunday, May 7th at 2PM. And please spread the word, and RSVP!
If you're in Asheville this weekend, come on over to the River Arts District for Uncommon Market Asheville 2023, “Asheville’s largest curated, pop-up market for antiques, art, vintage decor, jewelry and beyond.” While you’re there, be like Diane Keaton and pop in to the Marquee. Visit my stall, where you can buy framed and unframed prints and copies of The Road to Unforgetting.
Have a great weekend!
