Windham dazzles at library

I want to tell everyone that I spent one of the most wonderful mornings I have ever had when I had the opportunity to attend another lunch at the library featuring our very own Kathryn Tucker Windham. Her latest book, “Spit, Scarey Ann, & Sweat Bees” is delightful. She is delightful and I could listen to her for hours.

Listening to her regarding her childhood made me somewhat jealous that I did not grow up in Thomasville in the 1920s. I left the library and wanted to dash home and make frog houses and install ends of lightening bugs for the frogs’ overhead lighting, I wanted to buy a featherbed and fly june bugs. How magical it all was.

Thank you Kathryn Tucker Windham for the legacy you are leaving to so many, for your warmth, wit, and the talent for sharing these wonderful stories. I had the sweetest dreams last night after hearing you speak and reading your book.

Thanks, also, for Becky Nichols and the amazing staff at our amazing library. They work to provide a place where anyone can come and find something that lights a spark in anyone’s mind. In my opinion, it is the best of Selma and I look forward each and every week to going to our library and seeing my dear friends and learning something new. If you have not taken advantage of the library, I urge you to run, not walk and see what all it offers. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
