Dramatic Reading of “Alabama Story”

February 25 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Norfolk Library presents a reading of “Alabama Story,” a drama about censorship, book banning and civil rights. The play introduces the little-known true story of a librarian who was persecuted by politicians for protecting a controversial children’s picture book, “The Rabbits’ Wedding,” in the Jim Crow South. Politicians and citizens in Alabama wanted the book burned.

The play, set in 1959, freely mixes fact, fiction, humor and drama. It will be read by a group of Northwest Corner actors, directed by Macey G. Levin.
