Fannie Flagg

Fannie Flagg is an actress, comedian, producer, and author of bestsellers, including "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café", which was also the basis for a top-grossing movie. Just 10 minutes outside Birmingham is the small town of Irondale and the famous Irondale Café — the real-life inspiration for the Whistle Stop Café.
