With dozens of books published between them, it should come as no surprise that NewSouth authors Frye Gaillard and Laughlin McDonald are finding success with their newest books, each published by respected university presses.

The University of Alabama Press recently published acclaimed author and journalist Frye Gaillard’s newest book Alabama Civil Rights Trail: An Illustrated Guide to the Cradle of Freedom.

Gaillard has written over a dozen books on southern culture and history, including the NewSouth published Watermelon Wine: The Spirit of Country Music. He’s also contributed essays to NewSouth’s American Crisis, Southern Solutions: From Where We Stand, Promise and Peril.

Laughlin McDonald is the director of the Voting Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union and also a contributing author to NewSouth’s Where We Stand: Voices of Southern Dissent as well as American Crisis, Southern Solutions. The University of Oklahoma press recently published his new book American Indians and the Fight for Equal Voting Rights, an in-depth study of Indian voting rights which recounts the extraordinary progress American Indians have made.

Congratulations Frye and Laughlin.
