“Dynamic! Rich! Impressive! Cleverly crafted! Articulate! Razor-sharp!” ~ Salt Lake Tribune
A gentle children’s book with an apparent hidden message 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.
