Bill Ferris at Square Books on Friday, 10/7

This recent article in The Daily Beast by Jason Berry offers a splendid glimpse of the early life of Bill Ferris, how that life is expressed in Ferris's new book, The South in Color, and how it led to the vitally important work that Ferris did here in Oxford as the Director for the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. Do not miss our event for The South in Color and Bill Ferris on Friday, October 7, at 5 p.m. I'm serious, put it in your calendar this minute. -- RH
