I saw this play as a readers' theater production last spring and it's worth the effort to go to see. Also, there are several opportunities for discounts, discussion, and a workshop. Read on!

ALABAMA STORY” THE TALE OF A HEROIC LIBRARIAN
Utah library employees and library “friends" are invited to take advantage of a special group discount offer on Saturday, January 17 performances, which includes a post-show discussion exploring topics of librarianship and the Freedom to Read immediately following the 2 PM matinee.

Emily Reed was a charter member of the American Library Association’s Freedom to Read Foundation, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2015. In 2000, she received The Freedom To Read Foundation’s Roll of Honor Award.
