NOTICE: Remembering Willie Morris, Barry Hannah and other friends at Miss. BookFestival | Columnists


STARKVILLE — Last week’s Mississippi Book Festival was an opportunity to reconnect with old and dear friends as it celebrated extraordinary writers like the late Willie Morris and Barry Hannah with people who knew and loved them – including the extremely Willie’s talented, David Rae Morris, now an accomplished writer, photographer, filmmaker and documentary filmmaker.

I moderated a panel discussion on Morris which featured David Rae’s new book ‘Love, Daddy: Letters from My Father’ – a collection of personal letters written by Willie to his son as well as David Rae’s wonderful photos and stories of his complex relationship with his family and David’s worries about fatherhood. Morris died in 1999.
