The Janice Holt and Henry Giles Foundation has restored the cabin in which most of the Giles' books were written at Spout Springs, Knifley, Kentucky. Events are held there regularly. In addition to lawn chairs and food, folks often bring empty water containers with them and take home a sample of the clear, cold spring water. You will find many stories in our archives on the Foundation and on the authors, feel free to search and enjoy.
