About this book
Poet C. D. Wright and photographer Deborah Luster have compiled a literary map of Arkansas and an unparalleled guidebook to its writers and the surroundings. Produced for “The Lost Roads Project,” a walk-in exhibit of Arkansas as a state of letters, this map and catalog document the most significant places and authors in Arkansas’s literary history. The Guidebook is replete with photographs, biographies, excerpts from novels and stories, poetry collections, and memoirs. With over 150 writers listed, the Reader’s Map includes poets, country and blues songwriters, short fiction writers, novelists, historians, folklorists, and humorists. Each entry lists the author’s life span, genre of work, birthplace, and bibliography.
