Anyway, one of the cool things about working in a house museum like the Wren’s Nest is that it’s actually not boring. Okay, stop laughing.

Joel Chandler Harris lived, wrote and died a long time ago. Before you were born, even. He made a good run of it from 1845-1908, but his work is still talked about today…and especially recently.
