Getting started

Greetings from the land of Misfits and Good Country People! My name is Craig Amason, and I am the executive director of the Flannery O'Connor - Andalusia Foundation. Our non-profit organization is responsible for the restoration and preservation efforts at Andalusia, home of the highly-acclaimed fiction writer, Flannery O'Connor. This certainly is not the first nor the last blog devoted to Flannery O'Connor, so we aren't breaking new ground here. In fact, I got the idea from Bill Dawers, the current president of the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home Foundation in Savannah, Georgia.

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.
