Happy Birthday, Katherine Anne Porter

I've posted before about my meeting with Katherine Anne Porter, who was born on this day in 1890, or there abouts. She was notoriously unreliable as to the actual date. Like any memoir (especially these days), my post might not be entirely accurate, but it's the way I remember things. The symposium mentioned on the program to the left was attended by quite a few KAP scholars, two of whom (Joan Givener and Darlene Unrue) went on to write biographies of Miss Porter.

I read it quickly to say that you met her in 1890!

I'm old, Jeff, but not quite that old.
