Welcome to the online home of Revival:Lost Southern Voices strives to celebrate historically excluded, erased, or marginalized Southern voices. During this annual literary festival, presenters discuss Southern authors or artists whose works are out-of-print or do not receive the attention they deserve. We invite the public, scholars, students, writers, and inquisitive readers to join the conversation as we continue to discover and recover these Lost Southern Voices.
Revival: Lost Southern Voices is free and open to the public, presented by GSU Perimeter College in conjunction with Georgia Center for the Book.
