MONROEVILLE, AL (WSFA) - The next time you're in Monroeville, check out the wall mural that's being painted downtown!

Grove Hill artist Johnna Bush has spent the last few days painting a design from author Truman Capote's 'A Christmas Memory' on the side of a wall.

Capote, of course, was good friends with the city's most famous resident, the late Harper Lee of 'To Kill a Mockingbird' fame.

In the mural, the book's characters 'Sook' and 'Buddy' are depicted flying kites with their beloved dog, Queenie.

Monroeville Main Street leaders say they're planning a dedication later in April during which Bush will reveal the mural's title.

The mural is located on the west side of the downtown square on North Mount Pleasant Avenue, directly across the street from the historic Monroe County Courthouse Museum.
