Today's interview is with 2 cousins that lived on a dairy farm near Milledgeville.

"...they would call and say they were coming out there, and they were bringing Flannery with them, and Momma would say, "Now, you be here. And you can play with her. I knew that she was a little girl, and she didn't know how to do anything right. And she couldn't fish. So I just sort of tried to stay away, as far as I could."

"...and they invited Flannery to go to Macon with them. She agreed, and said, "wait a minute," and when she came back she had a box of chickens to take with her."

"Well it was the talk around town that that little girl was a writer, and you'd better watch what you said."
