Our region is a place where the love of good stories is second only to the passion for telling them.  And it's proven to be fertile ground for such tales.  Now, to the fiction of Irvin Cobb and Bobbie Ann Mason; and the nonfiction of Forrest Pogue, we can add Gloria Miller Beadles and Wanda Counts Holland.  The two retired Graves County middle school teachers have taken the stories and legends surrounding the antebellum southern Illinois mansion of John Hart Crenshaw and crafted them in to a well-received self-published work of historical fiction.  Todd Hatton speaks with Beadles and Holland about their new book, Dark Days @ Crenshaw House, available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million.
