Georgia Writers Museum, located in Middle Georgia's Putnam County, is a literary hub for readers and writers. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker grew up in Eatonton, Putnam's county seat; Joel Chandler Harris, recorder of the Brer Rabbit folktales, was born across the street from the museum. 

The museum's offerings include exhibits about famous Georgia writers, illuminating book talks, and compelling writing workshops. Georgia Writers Museum features a gourmet coffee shop, bookstore, and an extensive collection of historic typewriters. 

Located in downtown historic Eatonton, Georgia Writers Museum is a must-see experience for book lovers!
