Writer, Story Teller and Commentator, NPR's All Things Considered
For the past 17 years, Bailey White has shared her stories with All Things Considered on Thanksgiving Day. The former first grade teacher and avid gardener from southern Georgia continues this annual tradition.
"White was born in 1950 in Thomasville, Georgia. White still lives in the same house in which she grew up, on one of the large tracts of virgin longleaf pine woods. Her father, Robb White, was a fiction writer and later a television and movie script writer. Her mother, Rosalie White, was a farmer, and worked for many years as the executive director of the local Red Cross Chapter. She has one brother, who is a carpenter and boat builder, and one sister, who is a bureaucrat. White graduated from Florida State University in 1973, and has taken a break from teaching first grade to pursue writing full-time." Wikipedia
