In these stories of her mother, her Aunt Bet, and other women who influenced her, author and storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham reveals the complexity of Southern women in the days before feminism entered the common vocabulary. A legacy of independent women permeates these recollections: women who managed households, who became entrepreneurs, and who managed public facilities. The women she remembers may have been fair, but they certainly were not weak.More
Recording in her Alabama home, journalist and storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham shares humorous and touching tales of the important women in her life. Her warm, natural, and charming style almost convinces the listener that Windham is sitting in the next rocking chair. As she shares her recollections in a genuine Southern accent, she isn't afraid to laugh or even to burst into song. Her memories focus on Aunt Bet, who served as postmaster and cake baker in Windham's hometown of Thomasville, Alabama. The listener won't soon forget the tombstone in Aunt Bet's kitchen or her blackberry-wine dilemma. This is a sentimental journey one wishes would never end.
"Kathryn Tucker Windham's stories come to life in Women to Remember, recalling family interactions and stories with roots in the author's Southern heritage. These are excellent regional folk story-telling traditions which listerners will find rich in depth." (Library Bookwatch)
