Mississippi is the home state of some of America’s most prize-winning and adored writers, such as William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Tennessee Williams, each of whom has a place on our Mississippi Author Adventures Trail.
Many more writers lived there, but we selected those whose homes are able to be visited. We also added one university because of its outstanding collection of Southern literature, particularly the works of writers who were connected to the literary hub of Greenville.
