Celebration for The Mississippi Encyclopedia


We hope you'll join us this Saturday, May 20th, to celebrate the publication of The Mississippi Encyclopedia, the extraordinary 1,600-page result of years of scholarship by over 700 contributors and the tireless efforts of its Center for the Study of Southern Culture editors -- Jimmy Thomas, Ted Ownby, Ann Abadie, Charles Wilson, and Odie Lindsey. Beginning at 3 pm at Oxford City Hall Courtroom, some of its contributors will present "lecturettes" on their respective topics and, at 5 pm at Off Square Books, there will be a party and book-signing with all editors and contributors present.
