Auburn University Libraries’ Discover Auburn Lecture Series concludes its spring semester programs on Thursday, April 28 at 3 p.m. with a book talk featuring Paula Webb, librarian at the University of South Alabama, speaking on her book “Such a Woman: The Life of Madame Octavia Walton LeVert.”

LeVert was the granddaughter of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the daughter of the first Secretary for Florida, and the first woman to represent the United States outside the country. Her literary salon in Mobile, Alabama, and the publication of her only book, “Souvenirs of Travel”, resulted in international fame until her Union sympathies during the Civil War ended it all. 

Webb’s Discover Auburn program will be available as both an in-person program in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library and as a Zoom presentation at https://auburn.zoom.us/s/4882316628.
