The Deckle Edge Southern Truth Award

The Deckle Edge Southern Truth Award, presented by the Deckle Edge Literary Festival, is awarded to a Southern author whose body of work exemplifies the complexity of the South’s history, celebrates the gifts of the South’s diverse peoples, and enhances the narrative of the South by focusing on the progress we make and the continued work before us.

The inaugural Deckle Edge Southern Truth Award will be presented to Nikky Finney on the evening on Saturday, March 3, at the Deckle Edge Keynote Celebration at 701 Whaley. Tickets available soon.
