Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home

Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home Review

Celebrated Southern author Flannery O'Connor lived in this austere Charlton Street home from her birth in 1925 until 1938 when the family moved to Milledgeville, Ga. The home, which reopened in 2008 after a substantial renovation, includes oddities like the "kiddie coop," a cage for children designed by O'Connor's father. In fall, the home hosts a reception with lectures by academics and experts discussing different aspects of O'Connor's life and work. Additional literary events are held annually at the home and are free and open to the public.
