One of my favorite people in all the world is Kathryn Tucker Windham. She is a marvelous storyteller and is probably the person who singlehandedly got me interested in storytelling. She resides in Selma, AL, where there is a storytelling festival each October during the second weekend - the Selma Tale Tellin Festival. It is a wonderful two evenings of some of the finest storytelling anywhere.
The photo above I took when Miss Kathryn visited Helena, my hometown, for a special one-time event in July, 2007, hosted and arranged by Helena's Library Director, Victoria Ashford.
