It's Thursday...

 it's time for me to call your attention to the latest offerings at Chapter 16.

Go here for Clay Risen's piece on novelist Richard Bausch, recipient of the 2009 Dayton Literary Peace Prize for his book (no kidding) Peace.

Lyda Phillips recalls her unlikely encounter with civil rights legend Stokely Carmichael here.

Paul McCoy has a Q&A here with Johnny Cash's biographer, Michael Streissguth, about Always Been There: Rosanne Cash, The List, and the Spirit of Southern Music.

And, in a Confederate double-header, you can go here for Lacey Galbraith's review of Robert Hicks' A Separate Country, while I've got a review of Madison Smartt Bell's novel Devil's Dream here.

Happy reading.

Girl Reading, Franz Eybl, 1850
