Mississippi author Corley Longmire talks with host Jon DiSavino about the notion of self-identifying as a "southern writer." We discuss the presence of a divide between the North and the South which can still be felt in the U.S., and which has, in recent years, become even more visible. She explains how her current job with the University Press of Mississippi has exposed her to the great authors in that tradition, names like Eudora Welty and William Faulkner, in ways that have made her appreciate them in new ways.
