Join us in the courtroom made famous by To Kill a Mockingbird for captivating readings, enlightening discussions, amusing conversations and Monroeville’s famous brand of hospitality. We’re welcoming friends, old and new, to discover new authors, celebrate favorite writers and share great times with others who love Southern literature. U.S. poet-laureate Joy Harjo is this year’s Harper Lee Award recipient, and Michael Martone receives the Truman Capote Prize. This year’s food writer is award-winning chef Scott Peacock, and we end with two dynamic women from the podcast Friends & Fiction.
