Eagle Scouts at Andalusia
Thursday, October 30, 2008
The web page created by the Altamont students can be accessed at southernliterarytrail.org/paths_to_andalusia.html
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.

Andalusia in O at Home magazine
We were told several months ago that Oprah Winfrey’s magazine, O at Home, was going to publish a story on writers’ homes and would possibly include Andalusia. Well, they did. The article is in the latest issue (Fall, 2008) and includes a full-page color photo of the hayloft in the barn at Andalusia and a brief excerpt from O’Connor’s short story, “Good Country People.” O at Home has approximately 361,000 subscribers. I am especially pleased that the article includes the Foundation's web address and the days Andalusia is open. The Foundation has been very fortunate to have incredible media coverage over the last four years, including articles in the New York Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, and in magazines such as Travel+Leisure, Southern Living, and Oxford American.
You can view the online version of the O at Home article on their website at

Southern Literary Trail
Tuesday, August 19, 2008
I will be posting entries periodically to report on activities, events, and "what's going on" at Andalusia. We believe this internationally significant site has the potential to be one of the most important literary landmarks in the country because it is more than just a place where an author penned her fiction -- it is a place that very clearly inspired so much of the fiction. If you have never been to Andalusia, I encourage you to make plans to visit soon. Check out our website for all the details, including directions. Don't hesitate to call us at 478-454-4029 if we can answer any questions. Thank you.
