Good things appear in threes. Add another, and it’s alike better.
Recently, not one but four books on Alabama history came above my desk. I accustomed “Alabama: The Making of an American State” by Edwin C. Bridges, and I wrote about this absolute history–from bean age to amplitude age–in Birmingham magazine’s November issue. I got “1865 Alabama: From Civil War to Uncivil Peace” by Christopher Lyle McIlwain, Sr., who has spent the accomplished division aeon researching nineth-century Alabama. Next, I opened a amalgamation absolute “These Rugged Days” by John S. Sledge, which capacity Alabama’s role in the Civil War.
And finally, I accustomed a aces appearance book about our state. “Amazing Alabama,” accounting and cleverly ilrated by Laura Murray, is a coloring-book cruise to anniversary of our 67 counties. Like the added serious, erect history books, it’s well-researched with both iconic and lesser-known sites. The Elmore Canton folio ceremoniousness the Creek Indians who aboriginal acclimatized the area. It additionally includes Wetumpka’s admirable Bibb Graves Bridge, which was featured in the cine adjustment of “Big Fish,” and it capacity the asteroid that hit this allotment of the accompaniment 83 actor years ago creating a atrium 4.7 afar wide.
I angry to that folio first, back I grew up there, but attractive added into the book, I saw Olympian Jesse Owens on the Lawrence Canton page; the wintering ducks at Wheeler Wildlife Refugee in Morgan County; the boll weevil cairn in Coffee County; and one of the Tuskegee Airmen planes on the Macon Canton page.
I put all of these books into my “Alabama stack,” alive that we are a third of the way through a three-year anniversary of our state’s bicentennial, and I’m abiding I’ll charge them soon.
The emblage is activity to grow. I apperceive it will, actually, because I’m confined on the book-selection board for the bigger Big Apprehend our accompaniment has anytime seen. It’s allotment of ALABAMA 200, and we’re attractive at a lot of abundant books for readers of all ages and interests.
Alabama Reads 200 (the name, at the time of this writing, is still tentative) won’t affection aloof one book, which is what we’ve apparent in the past. In 2008, the Jefferson Canton Liry Cooperative answer a countywide Big Apprehend of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” auious readers to canyon the book forth back they were done. (I still bethink giving abundance to a acquaintance who was visiting from Turkey, so I apperceive the adeptness of this activity went far above our little bend of the world.) In 2010, anybody in the accompaniment was arrive to apprehend “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” and liries and communities throughout Alabama captivated fun, advisory contest centered on this book.
This time, with an alike broader statewide read, we’ll accept fiction and nonfiction, including books for s, adolescent s, pre-s, and children–plus a ce books never apparent before.
The above ALABAMA 200 anniversary started beforehand this year–coinciding with Alabama’s territorial bicentennial–with the focus on “Discovering Our Places.” Back then, educational, inspirational, and artlessly absorbing contest accept been accident all over our state–in anniversary of the 67 counties and in cities ample and small. These efforts bless the people, places, and contest that are abnormally ours. They blueprint Alabama’s aisle to statehood and focus on our shared–sometimes acutely hard–history. Go to alabama200.org and bang on the agenda for an advancing account of contest that includes cemetery strolls; art exhibitions; ball performances and concerts; building tours; festivals and fairs; parades; acreage days; and (happening now) Christmas attainable houses and tours.
We’re about to access a year of “Honoring Our People,” highlighting the aggregate adventures of all Alabans. I’m aflame about the Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee accident during the aboriginal weekend of March 2018. Also, alpha in March of 2018 and continuing until November of 2019, “Making Alabama: A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit” will appointment anniversary canton to spotlight our state’s history, culture, and cartography with alternate displays.
The final year of celetion, 2019, will centermost on “Sharing Our Stories,” and that’s back the statewide apprehend will begin. We’ll be announcement the called books soon. Anniversary nd additionally will accept a continued account of accompaniment books to added everyone’s account above the books actuality celeted. This is activity to be a anxiously advised account account that can aculate us active continued afterwards the bicentennial anniversary is over.
I can’t delay to allotment the fun, agitative agency this will comedy out.
A array of books acclamation history and real-life issues.
