Alice Walker, Flannery O’Connor, and Joel Chandler Harris’s stories span 150 years and 20 square miles in central Georgia, establishing the richest literary heritage in the state.

The achievements of these writers stem from their personal stories – their biographies. Each was born to a unique time and place and grew from the trials they endured. Despite their differences, each writers’ passion for the literary arts drove them to create the acclaimed works of literature that we know today.
