A group of Altamont School students from Birmingham, Alabama, enjoyed a literary tour of Georgia during fall break in October. The tour was organized and conducted by Altamont teacher Juliet Hemingway. The students are devotees of Flannery O'Connor, so Andalusia Farm in Milledgeville was a primary destination. They also visited The Wren's Nest in Atlanta (home of Joel Chandler Harris) and the Childhood Home of O'Connor in Savannah. The students agreed to provide photos and their impressions for a page on the Southern Literary Trail website upon their return. They did a wonderful job!

The web page created by the Altamont students can be accessed at

These students obviously had a great trip, and our Trail's "sense of place" theme made an impact on them.

Special thanks goes to Juliet Hemingway and William Gantt for making this addition to the Southern Literary Trail website posible.
