Mary Pom Claiborne was in Nashville Oct. 21-22, 2023, for the Southern Festival of Books. She posted:
“What a tremendous honor it was to interview Carl Hiassen … Equally thrilled to introduce Dennis McCarthy and Bryan Giezma for their discussion of Cormac’s work. Got to catch some amazing sessions – went total fangirl on Ann Patchett and Drew Gillian Faust.
“Congrats to Humanities Tennessee for putting on an inspiring book fest! Proud to be on the board.”
This was the 35th edition of the Southern Festival of Books, one of the oldest such events in the country. It is held every October in Nashville.
