      (1) Howard Bahr will read from his Civil War novel, "The Black Flower," on
      Sunday, January 24, 1999, at 4:00 p.m. at the Auburn University Center for
      Arts and Humanities (Pebble Hill, 101 Debardeleben St., Auburn).

      Bahr is the former curator of the William Faulkner house and museum in
      Oxford, MS. He is now teaching college in Tennessee. "The Black Flower,"
      his first novel, is set in the battle of Franklin, Tennessee, during the
      Civil War. His novel won the "Harold D. Vursell Memorial Award" from the
      Acaademy of Arts and Letters for Distinguished Prose. Most reviewers
      compare Bahr's novel to "Cold Mountain" in terms of literary achievement
      and historical accuracy.

      A reception will follow the reading. Copies of the the novel will be
      available for purchase and signing by the author.

      For further information, call Pebble Hill, (334)-844-4946.

      (Howard Bahr will also speak in Jasper, AL, on February 23 as part of the
      series "Read Alabama: The Tradition Continues.")

      (2) Governor Albert Brewer will speak at the B.B. Comer Library in
      Sylacauga on Monday, January 25, at noon. Brewer, who succeeded to the
      governorship, upon the death of Lurleen Wallace will talk about modern
      Alabama politics. His talk is part of the Comer Library's very popular
      "Reflections" series on Alabama History which is a noontime brown bag lunch
      event.

      The AU Center for Arts and Humanities is a co-sponsor of the "Reflections"
      series.

      For further information, call Dr. Shirley Spears, Comer Library, Sylacauga,
      (205)-249-0961.
