Presenting at the Monroeville Literary Festival, March 4 – 6
I’m pleased to share that I will be a presenter at the Monroeville Literary Festival this year! The 2021 festival will be virtual, not on-site in Monroeville, and my presentation will be on Thursday, March 4 at 2:00 PM. Information on how to register for the festival can be found at this link. All sessions are free.
This is the festival’s second official year, though it evolved out of the Alabama Writers Symposium, which began in 1998. The location is, of course, the hometown of the late Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird. The main event will be children’s author and poet Angela Johnson receiving the Harper Lee Award, which “recognize[s] the lifetime achievement of a writer who was born in Alabama or who spent significant time living and writing in the state.” Two others will also be honored: Allen Wier with the Truman Capote Prize, and Dr. Alan Gribben with the Eugene Current-Garcia Award.
