Curator's Talk: The South in 1960s Pulp Fiction Novels

Wednesday, October 17, 2018,
  • Location: Central & Divinity Libraries • 419 21St Ave S • Nashville, TN 37240
  • Room: Special Collections Library

Stereotypical characterizations of southern values, people and places are found in an interesting assemblage of pulp fiction novels in the Southern Civilization Book Collection. Racially and sexually provocative at the time of their creation, these books portray a South that existed only in the most lurid minds of the authors. Talk to be given by Kathy Smith.
