The Whistle Stop Cafe'

I came across a great blog post about 
Fried Green Tomatoes and it got me wondering...

You can find it here on Gerri and Mike's blog!

They always say the book is better than the movie 
so I figured what the heck, might as well read it.  
Ya well, guess what?
I haven't! 

But I will, one of these days.

Anyway, I was wondering
have you read any of the other books 
by Fannie Flagg?

We found out last winter while staying in the Gulf Shores area that Fannie Flagg had a place in Fairhope, Ala. Can't remember if it was just a "writers retreat" or if she lived there full time.
There was a quaint little bookstore downtown Fairhope that had many copies of her books of which some were autographed.

Thanks for the mention!

I recently read "Fried Green Tomatoes" and loved it! I had seen the movie when it came out but had never read the book. Both were wonderful IMHO ...


PS: Been to Fairhope (nice town)and that bookstore. That was before I read the book and I was looking for the original owner also an author but for the life of me, I can't remember his name. Apparently he is quite the celebrity in that neck of the woods.
