Kathryn Tucker Windham, 1918-2011

A great lady has passed. Kathryn Tucker Windham died on Sunday at the age of 93. She was an Alabama treasure and a national treasure. National Public Radio offered this segment about her life and work.  Here is another article from The School Library Journal 

In 2007, the University Library was fortunate—and thrilled—to have Ms. Windham speak at the annual "Live @ the Library Event."  You can visit the library's Facebook page to view more photos, which show a packed house.  No surprise there.   

You may be interested to know that there seems to be quite a lot of video material featuring this gifted writer and storyteller on YouTube
