Southern Literary Salon:
Harper Lee’s Alabama Mystery
Friday, September 25
Hosted by Anne and Andy McCarroll in their beautiful Germantown home.
The Salon is a literary party featuring writer-specific libations, light fare, music, and 30 Southern-inspired minutes of influential writers of or in the South.
The recent release of Ms. Lee’s source material (Go Set a Watchman) for To Kill a Mockingbird is arresting both in its character of Atticus Finch and how the writer could so radically re-imagine the story through flashbacks dating 20 years earlier. Lending national compassion to our mid-20th Century racial challenges, Mockingbird and its Alabama author inspire even deeper consideration when we hear the words that came both before and after the book’s Pulitzer Prize-winning publication in 1960.
Tickets are $55 for one Salon or $100 for both (with the Ernest Hemingway Salon), and include the entertainment, open bar, and fare.
