The Thurber House is a non-profit literary center, museum, and the childhood home of James Thurber.

James Thurber, a famous cartoonist and humorist, recreated the city of Columbus through his stories that toggled between his own reality and his pure imagination. Bob Hunter, a former sports columnist for The Dispatch, set aside the world of sports to enter in Thurber's Columbus with his new book, Thurberville.

Thurberville revisits the Columbus that Thurber shared with the world and draws a line between the fact and the fiction of James Thurber's life. Join us today in uncovering the life of James Thurber.
