Mississippi Arts Hour – Di Rushing

April 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Di Rushing

This week on the Mississippi Arts Hour, Lauren Rhoades talks with Di Rushing, whose new memoir, The Delta in the Rearview Mirror: The Life and Death of Mississippi’s First Winery (University Press of Mississippi), tells her firsthand account of the splendid rise and frightening fall of Winery Rushing. Di grew up in the Mississippi Delta. In 1976, she and her husband established the state’s first winery near Merigold, Mississippi. A few years later, Di opened Top of the Cellar Tea Room and published a companion cookbook featuring its recipes. In 1990, she and her family relocated to Ouray, Colorado, where she taught high school English for twenty years. Lauren and Di discuss the memoir and the harrowing events that led up to her family’s move away from Mississippi.

The episode airs on MPB Think Radio on Sunday, April 21, at 5 p.m. CST. You can also listen on your favorite podcasting app.
