Trailfest features a month of literary lectures in towns across the state of Georgia, thanks to support from the Georgia Humanities Council. Each town on the trail offers events celebrating the works of classic Georgia authors such as Flannery O’Connor, Carson McCullers, Margaret Mitchell, Alice Walker, Lillian E. Smith, and Joel Chandler Harris.

THE SOUTHERN LITERARY TRAIL® connects southern places in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi that inspired great American writers to create classic fiction and plays. The inspiration continues. Every two years, the Trail's organizers host Trailfest, the only tri-state literary festival in the United States with free events, theatrical performances and heritage tours.
