Eudora Welty Exhibit

One of my favorite classes in graduate school was the memoir. In it, for the first time I read One Writer's Beginnings by Eudora Welty, which I loved. I was also exposed to Welty's photography. As a government employee, she traveled the South during the Depression photographing country folks in Mississippi, her home state. They are beautiful, if sometimes haunting, photographs. I'm so excited that an exhibit of her photography work is opening at the Atlanta History Center this weekend, running through May 8. I can't wait to check it out.
