About Revival: Lost Southern Voices
Revival: Lost Southern Voices (RLSV) celebrates historically excluded, erased, or marginalized Southern voices. During this annual literary festival, presenters discuss Southern authors or artists whose works are out-of-print or otherwise do not receive the attention they deserve. We invite the public, scholars, students, writers, and inquisitive readers to join the conversation as we continue to discover and revive these Lost Southern Voices. A collaboration between Georgia State University Perimeter College and the Georgia Center for the Book, (RLSV) celebrates its seventh year with a four-day festival combining in-person and virtual events, from March 22-25, 2023. RLSV is made possible with funding from the DeKalb Library Foundation, Georgia State University Perimeter College, and a grant from Georgia Humanities. The Georgia Center for the Book at DeKalb County Public Library has been an RLSV partner since 2019. RLSV is free and open to the public. Registration is required for all events. Visit georgiacenterforthebook.org/rlsv for more information.
This event is free and open to the public, but RLSV welcomes donations of any amount.
