"Southern Journeys" Featuring Author Rick Bragg

We hate to brag, but Roswell Reads is privileged to present one of America's most beloved Southern authors: Rick Bragg! For the first time in its 14-year history, the Roswell Reads Steering Committee has chosen the entire collection of work by one author.

The Rick Bragg Collection includes:
  • The Best Cook in the World: Tales from My Momma's Table
  • My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South
  • Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story
  • The Prince of Frogtown
  • I Am a Soldier, Too: The Jessica Lynch Story
  • Ava’s Man
  • The Most They Ever Had
  • Somebody Told Me: The Newspaper Stories of Rick Bragg
  • All Over But the Shoutin'
Due to a recent hospitalization, Rick Bragg can not travel to Roswell, but he will appear virtually, via a recently recorded video presentation prepared exclusively for Roswell Reads. We promise a great event, including a tasty luncheon, with a variety of free books on the table and Southern Living magazines, signed Rick Bragg books for purchase, and a free raffle for some of his books.

Sponsors of this event include: The Roswell and East Roswell Libraries, a part of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System; The City of Roswell; Roswell Rotary; Publix; and the Friends of the Roswell Library, and Friends of the East Roswell Library.
