Faulkner Reading Marathon Announced

By Posted on 0 No tags 0


To commemorate William Faulkner’s 110 birthday, about 60 readers will gather at Rowan Oak in Oxford, MS to read aloud his novel Go Down Moses.

The event is not only celebrating Faulkner’s life and work, but it is also the innagural selection for “Mississippi Reads, a statewide initiative that annually encourages readers to gather around a specific book by a Mississippi writer.” Future years will focus on Richard Wright and Eudora Welty.
