But now the Childhood Home has entered a new phase. The board of directors recently hired Toby Aldrich as our first ever employee. Toby will work 24 hours per week. So as of November 16, the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home is open from 1 to 4 p.m. every day except Thursday (closed major holidays and the first two weeks of September and January). $5 for adults, free for those 12 and younger.
Among his many other duties, Toby will join me in making posts to this blog, which we hope will develop into just one of many ways in which we reach out to our past and future supporters.
This is an incredibly exciting moment in the 20 year history of the Childhood Home
