About the Event
Telling the stories of the modern American South can be complicated, compelling, and heartwarming - often all at the same time.

Location: CLE Lecture Hall
Presenter: Eric NeSmith comes from a long line of storytellers, but community journalism has been his passion since childhood, seeping into his veins through his fingertips as he inserted the sections of his hometown paper together at 8 years old. His career in journalism has spanned reporting, photography, marketing, editing, and publishing. He is the publisher and CEO of The Bitter Southerner, an independent publishing company known for stories that paint a broad, more complex picture of the American South.
