Our first big trivia question of the year is a real doozie. Which historical house museum, dedicated to preserving the legacy of Joel Chandler Harris and the heritage of African American folklore through storytelling, tours and student publishing, and serving as an educational resource for the community, the greater Atlanta area and visitors from around the globe on top of having great trivia questions in its newsletter, is turning 100 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR?

Think you know the answer? Post your guess in the comment selection below! What, you think it might be too easy? Ok, then. Bonus question: in honor of Valentine’s Day, if you could go on one date with a literary character who would it be and why? [There’s no wrong answer here. We’ll even take Ahab’s Whale.] Again, post your answers below. We’ll randomly select one lovelorn literary lad or lass to receive one permanent hug.*

*permanent hug comes in the small, medium, large, or x-large embrace of a wren’s nest t-shirt.


13 Comments to TRIVIA CONTEST!

  1. The Wren’s Nest on In the West End Area of Atlanta

  2. Jean Cleveland says:

    The Wren’s Nest on both counts!

  3. Congratulations, Wren’s Nest, on 100 years! It was such a pleasure to meet Jeri (great tour), Sue and Frampton during my visit in January, and I’m busy researching and working on the novel. To be continued…

    As for a literary character, well, I’m torn between Sydney Carton of “A Tale of Two Cities”, Jean Valjean from “Les Miserables” and Sara Crewe from “A Little Princess”, one of my childhood favorites.

  4. Sharon OFlaherty says:

    Answer 1: The Wren’s Nest! I have been visiting the Wren’s Nest since I was a kid…my Mom grew up in West End…I love the Nest, it is very special to me.
    Answer 2: Jay Gatsby would be my choice for a literary character date…he would be charming, suave and fun, I am thinking!

      Congratulations, Sharon O’Flaherty! You’ve won a Brer Rabbit shirt!

      We turned around three times with a blindfold and pointed first at your answer 😉 Would you be a doll and email Jessie your mailing address and shirt size? It’s at

    1.the Wren’s Nest!!!

    2. I’d like to go out with Brer Rabbit! What’s not to love? Smart, funny, well dressed. My heart’s going lippity clippity! (Ha ha) Seriously, all my fave HUMAN literary characters have huge flaws, so I’m sticking with the rabbit.

  6. Edith says:

    The Wren’s Nest of course! I think I would like to walk the street of London with Charles Dickens

  7. Linda says:

    The Wren’s Nest

    Laurie from Little Women, because he is sweet, endearing, and silly

  8. Tricia says:

    The Wren’s Nest, of which I have just become aware and will certainly visit on my next trip to Atlanta!

    Curious George — I know it would be an adventure to remember 🙂

  9. Tricia says:

    Wren’s Nest! A place I just recently discovered!

    Curious George — you know it would be an exciting adventure!

  10. Sue Gilman says:

    I love all these ideas! I can’t make up my mind though. I think of lots of the characters in 100 Years of Solitude. Then Linda mentions Little Women and I think how fun it would be to visit with that tomboy Jo. Bigger Thomas in Native Son is as interesting a character as there ever was. Boo Radley might be an intriguing conversation – or not!

  11. Claire Holden says:

    The Wren’s Nest… wow, 100 years…can’t wait to visit!

    Easy…I’d like to spend an evening with Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice…he is the perfect silent stranger:)I mean, can you go wrong with Jane Austen?

  12. Pnut Cleveland says:

    Errr- could it be one of my favorite spots in the Atlanta area, Throw me in that Brier Patch, I’ll guess WREN’S NEST.

    For a date, I would pick the Little Prince with his sheep. I was captured by his personality at such an early age. In fact, I threw over Peter Pan for the Prince. (I like men who can soar!)
