South Bound Lectures: RICK BRAGG

Rick Bragg is the author of three critically acclaimed and best-selling books, ALL OVER BUT THE SHOUTIN’, AVA'S MAN and THE PRINCE OF FROGTOWN. A native Alabamian, Bragg says he learned to tell stories by listening to the masters, the people of the foothills of the Appalachians. Bragg’s books have become

anthems in his native South, honoring the poor and working people, and have struck a chord with readers everywhere.

As a national correspondent for the Times, Bragg won the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing, for which the committee cited his elegantly written stories about contemporary America. In addition, he has twice won the prestigious American Society of Newspaper Editors Distinguished Writing Award, along with more than 50 other writing awards during his career, including the 2009 Harper Lee Award for Alabama’s Distinguished Writer of the Year, the 2011 James Beard Journalism Award for Food Culture and Travel and the 2013 Alabama Artist of the Year.

Most recently, Bragg is the author of JERRY LEE LEWIS: HIS OWN STORY, a biography of the famous rock and roller.

Bragg also writes articles for several magazines, including his popular “Southern Journal” column for Southern Living. MY SOUTHERN JOURNEY, a collection of Bragg's best essays about the South was published this fall.

Currently, Bragg is a Professor of Writing in the Journalism Department at the University of Alabama, where he teaches Advanced Magazine Writing and Narrative Non-fiction.
