Hello Kind Folks!

I Just got back from vacation to Tennessee while there we stopped by to visit with Caroline Fike a close friend of Andre's. Caroline is moving and down sizing and she GAVE me her entire Andre Norton collection, along with Signed editions of both Witch World Maps by Mary Hanson-Roberts, her collections of Robert Jordon, Elizabeth Peters and Mercedes Lackey and some additional items totaling over 500 books.

Heard some amazing stories of Andre and others, and yeppers she named names. Very interesting visit.

Awesome!

And I have a seemingly weird question: how did Andre pronounce her name? ANDre or AHNdre?

I would say AHNdre

I would say AHN dr-ay

She did mention that Andre was the feminine form of André
(note the accent on the e).

I do think that she would have corrected me, had I been saying her name incorrectly.

Thanks to both of you. I've said it both ways (always "dray" for the second syllable), but was curious as to the "correct" way.

What an amazing visit!  I'm so glad you had that experience.

Can you share any of the stories?

I'm thinking that that is not such a good idea.

Oh my! That makes it sound even more mysterious.
