The public is invited to a talk by Guy W. Hubbs, author of "Searching for Freedom after the Civil War: Klansman, Carpetbagger, Scalawag, and Freedman," on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 4 p.m. at Pebble Hill.

In "Searching for Freedom after the Civil War," Hubbs uses a stark and iconic political cartoon to illuminate postwar conflicts over the meaning of freedom in the American South.

Hubbs is a professor emeritus, reference librarian and archivist at Birmingham-Southern College. He is the editor of "Rowdy Tales from Early Alabama: The Humor of John Gorman Barr" and the author of "Guarding Greensboro: A Confederate Company in the Making of a Southern Community."

The event is free, open to the public and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St., Auburn. The historic 1847 Scott-Yarbrough house, known as Pebble Hill, will be open for tours from 3-4 p.m.
