FROM THE FRIENDS
A March Special EventThe Ozark/ Dale County Public Library and TheFriends of the Library are delighted to offer a veryspecial program,
 An Afternoon with the Faulkners of  Mississippi,
on Thursday, March 15 from 2:00 until3:30 p.m.
Put this one on your calendar and don’t
miss it!
Many believe that William Faulkner was the greatestAmerican writer of the 20
th
century. So, when a book appears that gives insights into the lives and character of the Faulkner family, written by one of their own, one sitsup and takes notice.Dean Faulkner Wells, the daughter of the youngest son,grew up, an especially favored child in the midst of thefamily. Her father, a barnstorming pilot in the early daysof airplanes, was killed in an accident four months beforeher birth. Brother William had bought him the plane, and promised upon her birth to raise her. At the age of 73,having outlived all the principals in the family story,Dean Faulkner set out to write her memoir. It took her two years, but the result is
 Every Day by the Sun,
amarvelous view of the untypical Southern family and itsfamous son.It is a book about relationships as perceived by theyoung Deanie during her early years and as she grew up.It was a childhood rich in stories and lore, much of itsupplied by her famous uncle. There is also the search for the father she never knew. Women of her age willrecognize the rites of passage that were customary during
the 1950’s.
 
If you know and love Faulkner’s work, this book will be a visit to a familiar place. If you haven’t read or have
tried and failed, this book would be a fine beginning.Faulkner, like Melville, is better understood after the ageof thirty. He is one of those rare artists who looksunabashedly into the human heart and tells the truth. Heloved the English language and stretched its uses infiction, inventing Yoknapatawpha County, its history,main inhabitants, and their stories.Unfortunately, Dean Faulkner Wells died July 27, 2011, but she gave a last informal interview two weeks earlier.In the 25-minute film, she recalls her relationship with
her uncle, whom she called “Pappy,” and discusses her 
 book. The film includes interior and exterior shots of 
Faulkner’s home Rowan Oaks.
 Her husband, Larry Wells, to whom the book wasdedicated, will conduct the program on the 15
th
and will play the interview as well. Some of our readers willrecognize Larry Wells, formerly from Ozark. He is thenephew of Judge Val McGee.
