This chapter provides strategies and suggests specific works for introducing Welty to new audiences, stressing the importance of helping readers connect to Welty’s life and work in a personal way. For young readers, Welty’s essay “The Little Store” is recommended with a multimedia approach. For middle and high school students, visual images paired with the short stories “The Whistle” and “A Worn Path” are recommended. With adults, Welty’s favorite authors and her own reading life can inspire reading of her fiction. The article outlines how the tour of the Eudora Welty House provides a direct connection to the author and an opportunity to interest visitors in her work. It concludes by directing readers to the Eudora Welty House and Eudora Welty Foundation websites for a virtual tour of Welty’s home, teaching resources, and reading guides.
