Rick Bragg’s Book Tour for My Southern Journey

September 23, 2015 | By | Comments (6)

It’s no secret that our back-page columnist, Rick Bragg, is beloved by Southern Living readers. We know that for some of you, his Southern Journal column is the first page you read in the magazine each month. While others tear out his essays from every issue to read them again and again. Well now we’re happy to say that you can read some of Rick’s best work in one witty collection. This month we published My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South.

    I live in Crawfordville, Fl in the Apalachicola National Forest. Florida should really be divided into 2 states- North Florida and South Florida.

    I had the privilege of attending the USM lecture and the book signing at T Bone records. I love Mr. Braggs writings and enjoyed meeting him.
