Alabama Story

“Dynamic! Rich! Impressive! Cleverly crafted! Articulate! Razor-sharp!”    ~ Salt Lake Tribune

A gentle children’s book that stirs the passions of a segregationist senator and a no-nonsense state librarian in 1959 Montgomery, just as the Civil Rights Movement is flowering. Inspired by true events, Alabama Story puts politicians, star-crossed childhood friends, and one feisty author in a struggle for the soul of the Deep South.
