The Lipscomb University Landiss Lecture Series
presents author Janisse Ray on Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 108 of the
Swang Center, 3901 Granny White Pike, Nashville.
The 2001-02 Landiss Series begins with “Ecology of a Cracker
Childhood” featuring Ray. Her book Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, winner of
the American Book Award, is an amazing interweaving of personal memoir and
natural history. In a language both elegiac and informative, she redeems two
Souths: her world perceived from a childhood in a junkyard in south Georgia,
where she boasted relatives as colorful as any fictional imaginations, and
the world of the natural beauty of the longleaf pine forests, a threatened
ecosystem. A naturalist, environmental activist and writer, Ray lives on a
farm in rural South Georgia and is a nature commentator for Georgia Public
Admission is free. The lecture is open to the public and everyone is
invited to attend.
