All in the Family

Did you know that Carl Sandburg’s house is now a National Historic Site? Did you know that Sandburg and his wife Lilian moved to the home outside Asheville, NC, because the longer summers would be good for her goat-breeding business? Did you know that the Sandburgs’ three girls were nicknamed “Spink,” “Skabootch,” “Swipes”? I didn’t either, but happily the blog Novel Destinations is there to fill in the gaps in my literary knowledge.
