Rosa Parks & Reading

I received this e-mail from the chair of Troy University's English Department at the Montgomery Campus, Kirk Curnutt:

As you know, the fiftieth anniversary of Rosa Parks' arrest is only weeks away. To that end, we would like to make you aware of an exciting event on the Montgomery campus that is taking place on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 in the Rosa Parks Library and Museum Auditorium. Troy-Montgomery's A&S divison is hosting a reading and book signing by Donnie Williams and Wayne Greenhaw, authors of "The Thunder of Angels: The Montgomery Bus Boycott and the People Who Broke the Back of Jim Crow." The event begins at 7 p.m.

I won't be able to make it, but if you are going to be in Montgomery and would like to go to a reading, this one sounds good. If you've never been to a book reading before and would like to attend this one, it is usually not necessary to buy the book in advance; they typically sell them right where the authors are signing them.

By the way, I also recommend Curnutt's book, Baby Let's Make a Baby, though it has nothing to do with Rosa Parks.
