This Goodly Land - Alabama's Literary Landscape

Rheta Grimsley Johnson, award-winning author of Poor Man’s Provence, is just one of many NewSouth authors profiled on the Alabama Center for the Book’s This Goodly Land: Alabama’s Literary Landscape website.

The Alabama Center for the Book’s This Goodly Land project features an interactive map where you can search Alabama’s vast literary landscape by county or author. The Alabama Center for the Book hopes that this project will not only serve as a celebration of Alabama’s tradition of quality literature, but also encourage state-wide literacy and spur up-and-coming Alabamian authors to great literary heights. Selected by a committee of experts on Alabama literature, over one hundred authors are currently featured on the website with new detailed profiles of other Alabama authors added periodically.

Other NewSouth authors profiled include John Beecher, Virginia Pounds Brown, Oxford Stroud, Sue Walker, and Kathryn Tucker Windham.
