Posting early this week because I'm off again for a short vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The same cannot be said for Bruce Gentry and his team of editors at the Flannery O'Connor Review. They have been quite busy of late putting the finishing touches on the 2012 issue, which is due to be released in early September. This is a special edition of the journal, which is marking its tenth anniversary as the Flannery O'Connor Review and the 40th anniversary of its inception as The Flannery O'Connor Bulletin. Copies of the Review will be available at the Andalusia Gift Shop for $15 each. In the mean time, we have another item in the gift shop that is sure to interest visitors of all ages: colorful peacock feathers courtesy of our resident bird, Manley Pointer, who has been molting this past week. These feathers make a wonderful souvenir of a visit to Andalusia, but hurry, supplies are limited.
