The Chattanooga Conference on Southern Literature offers
book lovers the opportunity to hear authors deliver lectures, read their works and take
part in panel discussions. While the speakers are first-rate and their topics lofty, there
is no dearth of snappy repartee, good humor and an air of conviviality marks the
proceedings. Conference-goers have the chance to meet their literary idols, talk with them
and take home a cherished signature.
The success of the Chattanooga Conference on Southern
Literature led the Fellowship of Southern Writers to make its headquarters in Chattanooga,
hold its biennial meetings in conjunction with the Conference and locate the Fellowship
archives in the Lupton Library of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
The Chattanooga Conference on Southern Literature is a
program of the Arts & Education Council.
