Officials in the town where Alice Walker was born want to build a trail honoring the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Color Purple."

Ms. Walker, 46, now is honored in Eatonton only with a street named for her and with books on display at the Chamber of Commerce.

Organizers of the Color Purple Educational Fund Foundation, which helps needy students, want to create a trail passing Ms. Walker's birthplace, her mother's home and the cemetery where her father and other relatives are buried.

Plans also call for erecting a monument in the courthouse square.
