In memory of Anne George

Anne Carroll George was a former Alabama State Poet and cofounder of Druid Press, who has published four volumes of poetry, and she was been nominated for several awards, including a Pulitzer Prize.

Anne wrote numerous short stories for literary magazines, before turning to the craft of mystery writing, for which she won a coveted Agatha Award. Her hilariously funny novels reflect much of her own experience.

Like her heroine Patricia Anne, Anne George was a happily married former schoolteacher living outside of Birmingham, Alabama, and she grew up with a cutup cousin who provided plenty of inspiration for the outrageous Mary Alice.

Anne passed away March 14, 2001 due to complications from heart surgery.
