The 2015 Southern Literary Festival will take place in historic Dahlonega, Georgia, on the campus of the University of North Georgia. The festival will be held in conjunction with the 11th annual Dahlonega Literary Festival. Dahlonega, Georgia is the site of the first major gold rush in U.S. history. Attendees may wish to try their hands at panning for gold or spending a day hiking the miles and miles of local trails, including the Appalachian Trail.
This project is supported by the Georgia Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.
