21c Fiction Issue Launch at the 21c Museum Hotel

Saturday, October 29th
7:30–9:00 PM


In an essay published in our pages in 2000, Jerry Leath Mills came up with a “single, simple, litmus-like test [to gauge] the quality of southerness in literature . . . Is there a dead mule in it?” We were curious if Mills’s hypothesis held up, so we brought the question to some of our favorite authors. Join Jill McCorkle, Megan Mayhew Bergman, Nic Brown, and Jamie Quatro as they continue the conversation started in our pages. Toast that talk and the new 21c Fiction Issue with the Deader Mule, a special cocktail from 21c Museum Hotel.
