Each month, MSU’s Mitchell Memorial Library unveils a banner commemorating a Mississippi writer on the Southern Literary Trail. This month, the library celebrates Roxie, Mississippi native Richard Wright. The Southern Literary Trail is the nation’s only tri-state literary trail, celebrating the classical 20th writers of Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.
Future banners will commemorate the seven additional Mississippi writers who are on the Southern Literary Trail.
