Historian and author Wayne Flynt will give a talk on his book, "Mockingbird Songs: My Friendship with Harper Lee," on Wednesday, May 10, at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

Spanning a quarter century from 1992 until Lee’s death in February 2016, "Mockingbird Songs" is a collection of letters between Lee and Flynt, who Lee considered a dear friend, and who is one of the few people to truly know the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Go Set a Watchman." Their correspondence offers a look into the life of the famously private author, revealing Lee’s later years with thoughtfulness and warmth. Read more about Wayne Flynt's talk.
