Last week, the Mississippi Department of Archives weekly program History is Lunch focused on a remembrance of author Barry Hannah. Hannah, (1942-2010) published eight novels and four collections of short stories. A master of short fiction, Hannah is considered by many to be one of the most important writers of modern American literature.
The panel was made up by James G. Thomas, Jr., editor of Conversations with Barry Hannah, Hannah’s nephew and fellow author Taylor Kitchings, and longtime friend George Ezell. The trio share experiences, stories, and letters from their time with Hannah. Video of the presentation is below.
