Organizers of the Georgia Literary Festival have saved plenty of room on the bookshelf for Statesboro's own community of authors. Seven critically acclaimed and award-winning writers with local ties will be among the 25 presenters at the free event on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Georgia Southern's Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building. Lori Amy's "The Wars We Inherit" has been called "brave, fascinating and compelling," Part personal memoir and part critical analysis, the book links the violence found in American homes to the violence that structures the larger culture.
