I hope you enjoy this printable for Word Search Wednesday. Today’s theme is the Mississippi Writers Trail. Why? I explored visited a stop on this relatively new trail last fall and because I’m a writer, I appreciated and connected with its previous, famous resident.

I visited Rowan Oak, William Faulkner’s home in Oxford, Miss. There are currently six destinations in Mississippi honoring Margaret Walker, Elizabeth Spencer, Tennessee Williams, Shelby Foote and Walker Percy, Faulkner, and Eudora Welty was the first to be honored.
