Event description

Description

In his book, Mockingbird Songs: My Friendship with Harper Lee, Wayne Flynt says that “Nelle Harper Lee was in many ways like the mockingbirds Miss Maudie described on that hot Maycomb day … complicated and independent.”

Flynt will be joined by Nancy Anderson, an Auburn colleague and sought-after Harper Lee scholar. Together they will read excerpts from Mockingbird Songs—“a collection of letters between Harper Lee and one of her closest friends that reveals the famously private writer as never before, in her own words.” (Harper Collins, 2017)

Wayne Flynt is professor emeritus in the Department of History at Auburn University, author of 13 books and one of the most honored scholars of Southern history, politics and religion. He is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Alabama—a free, online reference resource on Alabama’s history, culture, geography and natural environment.

Nancy Anderson is a semi-retired professor. She taught English for 42 years at Auburn University at Montgomery, where she continues to serve as the campus liaison for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. She also taught many summer institutes on To Kill a Mockingbird and authored the Encyclopedia of Alabama article on Harper Lee.

Admission is free. Book signing will follow, and books will be available for purchase.
