Davis published her memoir, Dirt in the Skirt, (which weighs in at over 500 pages) in 2009. There was also a website in her name. I just visited the spot and there’s some music going on upon opening the page. Can’t tell if it was there prior to Davis’ death, but it’s pretty funereal.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
