Remembering Kathryn Tucker Windham

Kathryn Tucker Windham passed away yesterday at the age of 93.  A legendary storyteller, Windham is famous throughout the southern US and best known as the author of many books of ghost stories, cowritten with her corporeally-challenged friend Jeffrey.  She will be greatly missed, but in those who have read her books and heard her speak  she leaves behind a valuable legacy, having cultivated a love of literacy and oral history as well as  many fond memories.
