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 political foes, star-crossed childhood friends, and one feisty children’s author on the same page to conjure a Deep South of the Imagination.
