John Sledge talked about his book, Southern Bound: A Gulf Coast Journalist on Books, Writers, and Literary Pilgrimages of the Heart, which represents a running conversation on books, writers, and literary travel written for the Mobile Press-Register Books page from 1995 to 2011. The collection includes more than one hundred of the best pieces culled from Mr. Sledge’s total output of approximately seven hundred columns.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Mobile, Alabama, from April 19-23 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
