The lady with a book...
...signals, yes, a Chapter 16 post. This week seems to be question time at the website. I had the pleasure of interviewing Elizabeth Spencer--doyenne of Southern writers, one-time student of the Fugitives, pal of Eudora Welty, etc. She's 88 years old, still writes beautiful stories and has lots to say. The interview is here. Serenity Gerbman has a fine Q&A with another Southern writer, Affrilachian poet Frank X. Walker here, and those of you who were intrigued by my review of Michael Sims's Dracula's Guest last week can hear a terrific interview with him on NPR's Here on Earth.
Nude Reading at Studio Fire, Bernard Hall, 1928 (I should have saved this painting for a wintertime post but it was too sweet to resist.)
