Mark Kemp served as editor-in-chief of SF Weekly until he recently resigned due to a serious breach in journalistic ethics by the publisher; however, he is and always will be the author of Dixie Lullaby: A Story of Music, Race and New Beginnings in a New South.
This site is where Mark writes about whatever’s on his mind. You’ll also find archives of his published work, video interviews, excerpts from book projects, and plenty of info on Dixie Lullaby here. His wife, Tarrah, wants him to put his singing and guitar playing up here. He probably won’t do that. He will mention, however, that said wife Tarrah is starting a killer vegan desserts business called Tarrahbite Vegan Delites.
Visit Mark’s blog, DailyKemp, for news and progress reports on new writing projects, books, readings, and more. He’s been remiss in keeping it updated—the price of having a job.
And please buy a copy of Dixie Lullaby at one of the links below (click on the book cover or Amazon button for U.S. price). It’s also available in hardcover and Kindle from Simon & Schuster, although I do not recommend the Kindle version, as it is riddled with errors typical of early ebooks, when publishers just dumped the text into a file with no proofing. You’ve been warned. (Hint: Just buy the softcover version at the links — it’s the most recent edition and the University of Georgia Press did a quality job with it.)
