Switching tracks and talking about adult lit for a minute, I have to tell y'all about a big event in Jackson, Miss. Are you headed that way any time soon? If so, then you need to know that the Eudora Welty House/ Museum officially opens next weekend, April 29-30. The previews are free on those days, and afterward one can tour for a small fee, by reservation only. For more information, I send you over to the lovely Eudora Welty Foundation. Jackson's Clarion-Ledger newspaper showcases the house and its gardens in some photographs and articles.
If you've never read a book or a short story by the renowned author, then change that, darlin'. My three recommended starting places for her work are 1. the short story "Why I Live at the P.O."; 2. the memoir One Writer's Beginnings; and 3. the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Optimist's Daughter.
