Event Details

Mark Childress’s novel, One Mississippi, was greeted with widespread and enthusiastic acclaim. Stephen King called it the “funniest book I have read in ten years.”

Another Childress novel, Crazy in Alabama, was made into a feature film starring Melanie Griffith, has been published in fifteen countries, and has more than a million copies in print worldwide. Childress has proven himself both an astute chronicler of southern life and a critical and popular literary success in the tradition of Faulkner, Alan Gurganus and Reynolds Price. Now, from one of the most beloved of American authors writing today comes Georgia Bottoms, a hilarious and heartfelt story about an Alabama socialite with an unusual secret.
