Kathryn Tucker Windham

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.

I will always be in awe of this lady. She actually sent me the sweetest note following the event. I framed it. What I would give to go and sit with her for an afternoon. Thanks for sharing yoru pics with me from that day!
