Farewell, John Egerton | The Book Case

See on Scoop.itTennessee Libraries

Sad news today: Nashville’s own John Egerton, one of the region’s strongest supporters of all things literary, has died at the age of 78.


Born in Atlanta, Egerton moved to Nashville in the 1960s and spent much of his career chronicling the city and the Civil Rights movement. Later in life, he was known best as a food writer, writing and editing several influential books on Southern cuisine and launching the Southern Foodways Alliance in 1999.
