A full-day guided tour that will take booksellers to Oxford, Mississippi, to tour the town and visit Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner, and Square Books. Highlights include Faulkner's grave, the Lyceum (site of the Ole Miss riot of 1962), the James Meredith statue, and historic Oxford Square, featuring three Square Books locations, boutiques, and many places to eat lunch. Most of the tour is guided, but guests will have several hours to explore historic Oxford Square on their own before returning to Memphis.
Meet at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel “fountain” entrance. The tour will end at approximately 3:45 p.m. at the Sheraton. Register here for Yoknapatawpha County Tour. Registration closes when the tour reaches capacity.
