We met with our professor's wife, Jeanetta Keller, who is the executive editor of the company. Here they are:
The building (or should I say buildings -- there are three) is amazing! The buildings are nestled in a forest, surrounded by waterfalls and lakes. They have dozens of patios, 20,000 tons of Alabama stone, windows everywhere and 22 test kitchens where they make meals for the magazine.
The buildings are filled with cool art, all from Southern artists...
Here's the outside of one of the buildings. They really were magnificent.
We also met editors of all the magazines, who were very welcoming. Seriously, working at a magazine would be a dream!
Also, I picked up a cool recipe for pomegranate key lime vodka cocktails. They are delicious!
