ATLANTApix: Wren's Nest Letter to the Editor

The Wren's Nest
The Wren's Nest
Lain Shakespeare, Executive Director of the Wren's Nest, home of Joel Chandler Harris, creator of the Uncle Remus stories and exponent of the New South, recently submitted a letter to the editor of TIME.

Unfortunately, it has not been published in the magazine, so Lain posted it on the Wren's Nest set the record straight.

I love that we have people like Lain at the helm of our treasured tourist sites, many of which double as education facilities. Lain also has a special interest in setting Harris' story right.

He's the great, great, great grandson of Harris. Regardless of family ties, Lain has done the Wren's Nest a great service by submitting and posting the letter, as well as through his change-leadership of this historic house museum. I will be watching this Atlanta tourist destination with great anticipation for what's to come next.
