Having enjoyed two incredible presentations on these authors last year by Margaret and Cecilia, it was interesting to read two newspaper articles:

Unique Glimpse of Harper Lee by Will Lester, Calgary Herald, July 15, 2017, describes a new book called Mockingbird Songs, by Wayne Flynt (Harper Collins).

Today (July 18, 2017) in the National Post there’s an interesting article, A roof of one’s own: The Residences and Nascent Feminism of Jane Austen by Sharon Lindores. It is based on speakers taking part in a bicentenary celebration of Jane Austen.

Happy summer reading!
