1993. Black-and-white photograph of Tartt standing between Taulbert and an unidentified conference-goer taken during the 1993 Mississippi Library Association's annual conference in Natchez where Tartt won the "Mississippi Author Award" for Fiction for THE SECRET HISTORY (1992) and Taulbert won the Non-Fiction Award for THE LAST TRAIN NORTH (1992). Printed on "Kodak Picture Maker Paper," presumably at an in-store kiosk; borders possibly trimmed as the photo measures just under 8 x 10" (7 3/16 x 9 3/16). BOLDLY SIGNED BY TARTT. Showing fairly unobtrusive surface scratches to background and shoulder of unidentified man, touch of minor creasing, and barest edge rubbing. Early signed photographs of Tartt would appear to be quite scarce.
