MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The 24th annual Southern Festival of Books kicks off Friday on Legislative Plaza in Nashville.
Festival officials say they’re expecting about 250 authors, most of them from the South. Every author will take part in a panel discussion, or do a solo reading, followed by a book signing.
Two of the authors participating this year are mother and daughter writing team Alice Randall and Caroline Randall Williams. Nashvillian Alice Randall is both a song writer, with a number of top selling country hits to her credit, and a best-selling author.
