John Diamond, who once led media relations at the University of Arkansas, will sign books at Wordsworth, the Heights bookstore, from 5 to 6 p.m. Monday, June 13.

Diamond is the author of "Please Delete: How Leadership Hubris Ignited a Scandal and Tarnished a University." The book details the financial mismanagement discovered in the advancement division at UA in 2012 that led to an legislative investigations and ultimately, the departure of several officials, including the chancellor and Diamond. Good judgment and accountability, at a minimum, were lacking, in Diamond's telling.
