About the tour: By exploring each room of The Wren's Nest, the historic home of a noteworthy American writer, tour takers will learn about the life of Joel Chandler Harris, the significance of the Brer Rabbit folktales in American literature, and trends in Atlanta history encapsulated by the city's oldest house museum.
About the storytelling: For decades, The Wren's Nest has presented a weekly storytelling hour on Saturdays, allowing visitors to hear the tales in the spirit of their original form. Professionals perform at these sessions, all of whom bring a unique style to their craft, making the old stories come to life for people of all ages. With their talents, we can share the stories that entertained, inspired, and taught so many (including Joel Chandler Harris) and introduce them to new audiences.
