Fairhope Writer’s Colony

To quote Fairhope author Sonny Brewer:

Fairhope is home to more published authors per capita than any place else in the country. At one point not many years back, three local writers were on the New York Times bestsellers’ list at the same time: WEB Griffin, Winston Groom, and Jimmy Buffett. One author suggested we have a billboard at the edge of town to declare “Fairhope, Alabama, the home of more writers than readers!”
