Book club visits Willie Morris sites
Special to The Herald
The Lucky Ladies Book Club from Jackson, Flora, Madison, and Ridgeland, having read a series of books by Willie Morris, toured his home places in Yazoo City on March 26.
They began with lunch at Tom’s on Main, then went to the library, where John Ellzey told them of Main Street School, the Sam B. Olden Historical Museum, and the new Haley Barbour Room.
Afterward, they went to Glenwood Cemetery to hear Vay Barbour McGraw tell of the Witch of Yazoo. She was accompanied by Charles Carlisle.
They were very enthusiastic about the places made familiar to them by Willie Morris in his descriptions of Yazoo City and said the hospitality here was unsurpassed.
