Title: “13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey”  

Author: Kathryn Tucker Windham and Margaret Gillis Figh 

Reviewer: Patricia Poe 

 

The William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle is trying to enhance our Alabama non-fiction section. At the top of our list to purchase is Alabama authors or stories written about Alabama. 

One such book is written by Kathryn Tucker Windham and her English teacher friend, Margaret Gillis Figh, on the topic of ghosts in Alabama. They chose 13 stories from around the state and also include information about Jeffrey, the resident ghost at Ms. Windham’s home.  

The authors are not trying to encourage you to believe in ghosts; they just simply want to entertain their audiences.  

My personal favorite story from this book is titled “The Hole That Will Not Stay Filled.  

This book is ready to be checked out. Share with the librarians your favorite story!
