Our thanks to everyone who submitted or recommended a book. We're still working on the speakers' program, so keep an eye on the growing list of participating authors.
Announcing the Alabama Book Festival Student Readers Group Book Selection
For the third year, we invite high school (grades 9-12) and university undergraduates to participate in our Student Readers Group by reading Weren't No Good Times: Personal Accounts of Slavery in Alabama, edited by Horace Randall Williams, and then coming to the Alabama Book Festival on April 19, 2014, to meet the editor and discuss the book with him. Participating in the Student Readers Group is free, but students must obtain their own copies of the book. We invite teachers to involve their classes in this program, and we encourage extracurricular groups, church youth groups, and individual students to participate. We will hold a professional development session on the program in January 2014 for teachers who would like to participate in the program. Click here for more information.
We very much appreciate all our Sponsors, Partners, and Friends, without whom there would not be an Alabama Book Festival.
