2009 is Eudora Welty’s centennial year.   She was born April 13, 1909 in Jackson, Mississippi.  She died in Jackson in 2001, but here in Mississippi and throughout the world, her spirit lives on through her stories.  This blog is dedicated to celebrating her life and her work.  Join me throughout 2009, and in particular in the days leading up to her birthday for reflections on her life and work.
