The Wren’s Nest is the Queen Anne style home of Joel Chandler Harris, located in the West End neighborhood of Atlanta. On the national register of historic places, The Wren’s Nest is a museum that’s open to the public for tours, but it’s become so much more than that in the 100+ years since Harris bought the home.
This week’s guest, Kalin Thomas, is program director at The Wren’s Nest. She joins us to talk about the historic West End and continuing the legacy of Joel Chandler Harris.
As Kalin mentions in our conversation, Literary Atlanta is thrilled to be partnering with the Wren’s Nest on a new author series called “Beyond Books.” This series will feature a monthly author talk at the Wren’s Nest. Kalin has already confirmed the first authors of the series, which kicks off next month. We’ll have more details on Beyond Books in future episodes.
