THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1999---HOGANSVILLE HERALD--3 Author Bailey White To Speak At Friends Of The Library Annual Dinner Author Bailey White of Thomasville will be the keynote speaker at the LaGrange College Friends of the Library annual dinner on Thursday, February 11 at 7:00 p.m. at Lamar Dodd Art Center. She will hold a book-signing just prior to the event, Tickets are $12 and can be reserved through February 2 by call- ing Lori Slay at (706) 812-7233. White is the author of "Quite a Year for Plums", "Sleeping at the Starlite Motel: and Other Adventures on the Way Back Home" and "Mama Makes Up Her Mind: And Other Dangers of Southern Living". White's commentaries on National Public Radio about eccentric rela- tives and rural life, as well as her surprise best-seller "Mama Makes Up Her Mind", have transformed her from a 'first-grade teacher living with her mother in south Georgia to a reluctant and somewhat baffled mi- nor celebrity,' according to an article in the New York Times. Though White is known for her radio personality, she said she sees herself as a 'writer in print, and the fact that I have a job on the radio is just coincidental.' On the radio she has a radio voice of an 80-year-old, though in reality she is in her 40s. Her simple rural values and home- spun, Southern truths have generated more mail than any other NPR com- mentator. Many of the letters are from Southerners who have moved away and tell her she reminds them of their grandmothers. Her radio commentaries and sketches are filled with folks like her Uncle Jimbuddy, a skilled cabinet- maker with a habit of.chopping off. his fingers one by one; her Aunt Belle, who taught an alligator to roar on command; and most of all her mother, Rose, who keeps very active worms in her kitchen for recreation and the garden compost. Her first novel, "Quite A Year for Plums", introduces her readers to the peculiar but lovable people who in- habit a small town in southern Geor- gia: Roger, a peanut virologist; Della, a painter of chickens; and Louise, who is laying to summon Martian . invaders.
