      New Ghost Story Anthology Released in Time for Spooky Holiday

      The best of the best from the South's most beloved storyteller

      Montgomery, Alabama-Jeffrey, the ghost that has haunted Kathryn Tucker
      Windham's house for 40 years, is back! This time, he helped Mrs.
      Windham choose 13 of the best stories from her acclaimed series of
      Southern ghost stories. Introduced in 1969 with 13 Alabama Ghosts and
      Jeffrey, these delightfully mysterious tales relate supernatural doings
      from across the region. The first volume was so popular that the author
      followed up with five more. The new book, Jeffrey's Favorite 13 Ghost
      Stories from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi, with an
      introduction by Mrs. Windham, is filled with cameos by historical
      people in historical places.

      Kathryn Tucker Windham is one of America's best-loved storytellers.
      Now in her 80s, she began writing as one of the first women daily
      newspaper reporters in Alabama. After a successful career as a
      journalist, she turned to writing books of ghost stories and folklore.
      She remains one of the most popular performers at national storytelling
      festivals and has been a featured commentator on National Public Radio
      and Alabama Public Radio.
