Word of [South], a festival of literature and music which held its inaugural event April 11-12, 2015, is a unique blend of writers and musicians and an exploration of the relationship between the two disciplines. The festival features authors who write about music, musicians who also are authors, authors and musicians appearing together, and everything in between.

Word of [South] also boasts a tremendous children’s program, with authors and musicians appearing who appeal specifically to children ages 2 to 18 (and above!)
