Andy Offutt Irwin’s beloved fictional Aunt Marguerite has fans all over the country. Now, after decades of sharing stories about the 85-year-old matron (who holds a medical degree and runs a hospital with other elderly widows), Andy has written a story in which Marguerite finds … well, a boyfriend. The story itself comes in another Apple Seed episode, but today we talk with Andy about the making of that story. You’ll also hear one of our favorite shorter stories of Andy’s, called “Book Every Saturday for a Funeral,” and a story by Kevin Kling called “Mitten.”
