Bobbie Ann Mason Autograph

I got the weird idea the other day to photograph and upload author autographs I have. Here's one of my first, by Kentucky author Bobbie Ann Mason.
It was in 1982 or 1983 that Shiloh and Other Stories had been out for a short time, and she came to do a reading at Georgetown College, in the Spring semester.
I remember a friendly argument the Shakespeare professor had with our modern fiction professor; basically that nothing good was written after 1620 or so.
I was delighted when I told her that I really liked her story "Still Life With Watermelon," and she read it the next day.
