Center for Literary Arts
In honor of Sidney Lanier’s legacy, Historic Macon Foundation, the owners of the Cottage, have established the Lanier Center for Literary Arts. In addition to sponsoring writers’ workshops and other literary events, Historic Macon has a regular series of book signings.
For this series, entitled Sidney’s Salons, Historic Macon invites well-known authors and bright, up and coming authors to read their works, answer questions, and sign books. Series run the gamut of interesting topics. Past series have featured Civil War and Civil Rights, poetry, local writers, Macon’s history, and even Southern food and gardening. Notable past guests include Steve Berry, Gena Knox, and Natalie Dupree.
