Renowned folklorist William R. Ferris has captured the voices of
southern musicians, artists, writers, and thinkers for forty
years—and we have been proud to publish his work in
for nearly half of that time.
To celebrate Southern Cultures'
20th anniversary, we present
our inaugural special omnibus ebook, The William R. Ferris
. Collected here for the first time are all 20 of Bill
Ferris's essays and interviews as they have appeared in our pages
between 1995 and 2013, as well as an introduction to the collection
From folk humor to moon pies to Faulkner, Welty, Walker, and so
much more, we are delighted to share this special collection of a
favored friend, mentor, and colleague.
