Word of Mouth
I have been to Selma, Alabama, at least three dozen times. My father grew up there with his grandparents and a gaggle of cousins. For much of his childhood, his front yard was a fifty-acre cotton field, and it was not uncommon to see a chicken running around with its head cut off. We visited […]
At ninety-one, Chase has served her famous gumbo to everyone from Martin Luther King Jr. to Barack Obama. Her New Orleans restaurant was once a meeting place for civil rights freedom fighters, and her life inspired the character Tiana in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. You’re known as the Queen of Creole Cuisine, […]
The first great writer I met was Robert Frost, following a reading at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. Nineteen sixty-one, I think it was. He was old and gently stooped in the shoulders.

A decade ago, the New York Times declared 12South, a ten-block east Nashville neighborhood, an up-and-coming hot spot. Today, the once-emerging district is an established destination, regarded as one of the South’s hippest strips. You’ll find original art and organic eats, guitar strings and growlers, as well as the best blue-jeans shopping in the South and […]
Let’s face it, everyone likes Harry Connick Jr. Soccer moms sound like schoolgirls when they talk about his wavy brown hair and mile-wide smile. Most Americans over forty can still hum the chorus from “It Had to Be You,” which became his first hit when he recorded the popular standard twenty-five years ago. Even too-cool-to-care […]
Travel does much to broaden, educate, and civilize us. We’re exposed to new sights and scenery, exotic cuisines and cultures, life-changing experiences.
