Lyda Phillips Review of Nashville Burning Appears on Chapter 16
  Lyda Phillips, a veteran journalist and author of two young-adult novels, recently reviewed Nashville Burning on Chapter 16, "A Community of Tennessee Writers, Readers, and Passersby." Ms. Phillips writes in her review, entitled Setting Fire to Jim Crow, "In April 1967 Vanderbilt University students invited four unlikely visitors to their annual Impact Symposium—Martin Luther King Jr., activist Stokely Carmichael, conservative Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, and poet Allen Ginsberg. This event, although touched on only briefly in the novel, is the nexus of the disparate characters who inhabit Gerald Duff’s latest novel, Nashville Burning."
