Kathryn Tucker Windham

The Alabama Arts Radio Series has their interview with Kathryn Tucker Windham online now, and it is *so great* - the topic is cemeteries and they talk about everything from customs to dinner on the grounds to the Lady Bankshire rose.

She talks for a long while about Live Oak in Selma. And she talks about the mask monuments at Mount Nebo!! I had no idea that what happened to the arms on the monument for Isaac Nettles' mother was that deer had come along and rubbed them down to nothing.

I just got KTW's new book - Spit, Scarey Ann, and Sweat Bees: One Thing Leads to Another - about her childhood. That little book is just full of wonderful stories. Another new radio interview with her is here.
