Athens Writes: Authors With an Athens Georgia Connection

by Donny Bailey Seagraves

On any given day in Athens, Georgia, works of art swirl across canvases, musical notes float on the air and words rise above the classic city, forming a cloud of creativity.

My hometown of Athens, Georgia, long-known as an art and music town, also is a literary town, filled with talented natives who have a way with words, writers who came to the University of Georgia for an education or a job and stayed, and authors of all genres passing through to speak at an event or teach a workshop. 

In Athens Writes, I’m going to introduce you to authors I’ve had the privilege and honor of interviewing and writing about during my 7 years as a local newspaper columnist and 20 years as a freelance magazine writer. Some you may already know from their books. Others you may meet for the first time. No way can I include every author with an Athens, Georgia connection. But I will cover many and after reading this book, I hope you will think of Athens, Georgia as a literary town.
