Historic Blakeley State Park invites all those interested in the literary arts to join us at Five Rivers Delta Resource Center for our annual Alabama Authors Day. This special celebration showcases the work of accomplished writers throughout the state, with an emphasis on Gulf Coast authors and those who explore topics associated with regional history and natural heritage. 

This year's lineup includes a presentation on the latest findings by the team that conducted archaeological investigations on the Clotilda; retired Auburn University professor Dr. Wayne Flynt with his new book on To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee; Gulf Coast historian Dale Cox discussing the story of the "Creek Pocahontas"; former USA professor Dr. Dan Rogers with a new book on the USS Alabama; travel writer Joe Cuhaj discussing his new guide to Mobile and Gulf Coast history; local author Paula Webb presenting her new novel based in Mississippi; author and graphic artist Laura Murray talking about her series of children's books; and retired professor Dr. Tennant McWilliams with a discussion about his role in the republication of a landmark volume on the history of Fairhope.
