Hats Off! to Katie Winkler whose essay appears in Unbroken Circle: Stories of Cultural Diversity in the South (Bottom Dog Press), edited by Julia Watts and Larry Smith. "We are a people as varied as the Southern landscape, from the mountainsof Appalachia to the deltas of Mississippi to the skyscrapers of Atlanta," says Watts in the introduction. "We are urban and rural, old and young, poor and rich, and all points in between. We are all these things, plus more that don’t fit into neat categories. The voices in this collection represent some of the diverse voices of our region."
