I’m participating tonight in the Montgomery Education Foundation’s Brain Brawl Trivia Challenge on the five-person team for Booker T. Washington Magnet High School. The winning teams earn money for their schools, so wish us luck!
I’m proud to say that my entry on Agrarian critic and writer Andrew Lytle is now online on the Encyclopedia of Alabama. In previous years, I had written the entries on fiction writer Mary Ward Brown and poet John Beecher, and I’m quite pleased to have written this entry on Lytle, whose essay “The Hind Tit” appeared in the 1930 I’ll Take My Stand collection.
The EOA, as the encyclopedia is often called, is a wonderful resource on Alabama’s history and culture. Anyone who hasn’t browsed through the site will be pleasantly surprised that our state is so much greater than we might assume it is.
