Eudora Welty House by eudora

Eudora Welty House

Eudora Welty is one of my idols. She was a brilliant author and photographer, very Southern. I've visited her home in Jackson, Mississippi. I've read her novels and short stories. I've seen a couple of her photographs in museums and more in books and online. Now I've discovered an audiobook of one of her novels, The Optimist's Daughter, read by Eudora Welty herself. It's like listening to a friend.

This is a fabulous photo of her house. I am so excited you have found the audiobook also. I know you will enjoy it.

I felt that way when I found a recording of E.B. White reading Charlotte’s Web. I love this house — I didn’t realize she was a photographer too.

@wiesnerbeth It is amazing to listen to authors read their own works. I didn't know how many pictures Eudora Welty took until we visited her house. She took them in Mississippi during the 1930's, some of them for the WPA. Lots of rural scenes and people.

Great shot and a very lovely house. I haven't heard of this author probably her books targeted more females.

Didn't know she was a photographer too! Will have to see if I can find any online. And thanks for the reminder, been meaning to take that book off the shelf...

I have heard her name and I know I've seen some of her pictures even though I can't recall them exactly. She sounds very inspirational. She certainly had a pretty home- enjoy the book!
