Southern Voices 2011: Striking a Chord

The 19th Annual Conference of Southern Voices 2011 has come and gone.

The event, held at Hoover Public Library last month, was a HUGE success. Rosanne Cash celebrated author, singer and songwriter spoke about family, her relationship with her dad -legend Johnny Cash- and her memoir Composed. Other featured authors who attended were Batt Humphreys, Adam Ross, Helen Simonson, Neil White, Susan Rebecca White and Emily Griffin. Read a Birmingham News article written by Amanda Bonner of Hoover Public Library and view the picture gallery that HPL has posted on their site.

The conference closed with the Carolina Chocolate Drops. The performance was sold out! If you've never seen (or heard) this African American string band perform you're missing an experience of a lifetime!

Striking a Chord was purchased by the library for their permanent gallery.
