Nan Graham was born in Tallahassee, Florida, and grew up in Columbia, South Carolina, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an A.B. in English and received her M.A.T. in English from the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. She currently teaches honors courses in Southern literature at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

Graham has been a regular biweekly commentator for WHQR Public Radio in Wilmington since 1995. Her on-air tag line, “a lifelong Southerner,” reveals the focus of her humorous commentaries on growing up in the South.

Her first collection of radio essays, Turn South at the Next Magnolia, was on the SEBA (Southeast Booksellers Association) bestseller list and was praised as “relentlessly Southern” by Pat Conroy, author of Beach Music and The Prince of Tides: “Nan Graham is as Southern as blackeyed peas, scuppernong wine, shecrab soup, Crimson Tide tailgating and a dog with ticks. She is so relentlessly Southern she makes me that feel I was born in Minnesota and Bailey White in Ohio!” (http://www.nangraham.com/biographyl.htm).
