It's been a while since Barbara called Tucson home, but some Tucsonans still remember falling in love with The Bean Trees all those years ago. Barbara has come a long way since then, blossoming into one of America's great modern novelists and essayists with works like The Poisonwood Bible, Flight Behavior and The Lacuna. We like to remember we knew her when she was just starting to put words together for a living. Did you know she worked on the very first Best of Tucson®? True fact.
