Southword: Coming Home — And Out — In Arkansas

Going home can stir up mixed emotions: There’s the joy of catching up, nostalgia, old flames — grudges. Even if you haven’t really considered it “home” for a decade (you probably left for a good reason) — there’s something that keeps you coming back.

NPR teamed up with Oxford American magazine to bring you this slice of life in the south — the latest in our ongoing series, Southword.
