In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-At-Large Marshall Ramsey visits with Ellen Rodgers Daniels. Ellen is the new Executive Director for the Mississippi Book Festival, opening a next chapter in her forays into the heart of Mississippi culture.
This Rolling Fork native served for two and a half years as the festival literary director after a dozen years as a bookseller at Lemuria. She is also known for her work as a gallery assistant at Fischer Galleries and for her fine art photography, which has been shown in galleries throughout the Southeast.
Ellen and Marshall discuss this year’s virtual festival after the in-person event was canceled due to the Delta variant.
