The Center’s quarterly newsletter for Center friends, the Southern Register, provides readers with Center-related news and updates. If you would like to receive the Register through the mail, please email

Current Issue - Spring-Summer 2020

Editor’s Note: As a result of the disruption and cancellation of Center events caused by the COVID-19 pandemic this spring and summer, we have chosen to move the Southern Register to online publication for this Spring-Summer 2020 issue. We’ll return to our usual print publication this upcoming fall, but until then we’ll publish weekly stories that would usually appear in the print edition of the Southern Register. Check the Center website and social media each Monday for new “Southern Register Stories” and announcements of upcoming events.
