On Tuesday, June 19, the Mississippi Book Festival revealed this year’s official art, an oil painting from Mississippi native artist Baxter Knowlton that features bestselling Mississippi author Jesmyn Ward.
“Both artist and subject represent the best of our state,” festival director Holly Lange said in a release. “The works of these remarkably talented Mississippians reveal an intense love of their craft. We are grateful for their support of the festival.”
