This is a fantastic line up of authors, very diverse in their writing styles and genres. I have read several of their books and am really excited to have the opportunity to hear them talk.

The best thing about Southern Voices is that these authors are not asked to speak about their latest books, but instead are encouraged to tell us what drives them, what gave them their start, how they evolved into the authors they are today - I always find these stories to be fascinating. 
Tickets for the 2016 Southern Voices Festival go on sale Jan. 8. Tickets will be sold online and by phone only from 9 to 11 a.m. that day.

The Hoover Library Theatre box office will open for walk-ups at 11 a.m., but the tickets in the past have sold out in well under an hour so there is not guarantee there will be any available then.
