A Good Book Is Hard to Find

...especially if it's a signed, first edition of Flannery O'Connor's short story collection, A Good Man Is Hard to Find. Believe me, folks, I went to the web this week looking for one and there just aren't any out there. I checked the major used book sellers, e.g. Abebooks, Alibris, etc., and you simply can't find this volume anywhere. Fortunately, through the generous donation of one of our Friends, we are auctioning off a signed, yes signed, first edition of A Good Man Is Hard to Find at Andalusia next week. This silent auction will coincide with the Flannery O'Connor conference at Georgia College (April 13-16). Bidding on this rare book starts at $1,000 and must be done in person at Andalusia between 4:00 Wednesday afternoon and 3:00 Saturday afternoon. Autographed copies of O'Connor's works are rare. She just didn't sign that many books. So this is a unique opportunity for you to acquire a real collector's item. If you have any questions or would like more information on the auction, please call us at 478-454-4029. Whether you bid on the book or not, please feel free to visit us next week.
