Growing up in Tunica and living and making a career in North Mississippi has given author Bill Bailey “great material to work with,” Bailey told the crowd at the Tunica Literacy Council’s annual meeting last Tuesday.
Citing the influence of Tunica County High School teachers Thurman Clark and Agnes Coulter, Bailey quoted Alfred Lord Tennyson to explain how he draws from his own experiences to craft characters and story lines.
“’I am a part of all that I have met,’” Bailey recited. “That was one of Mrs. Coulter’s favorites.”
