Alabama Story is a play about books, censorship, race, and the American South of 1959. Written in 2015 by Kenneth Jones, it was inspired by true events when an innocent children’s book written by Garth Williams, The Rabbits’ Wedding, was published. Convinced that the book has hidden evil messages, Alabama state legislators bully the State Librarian, Emily Reed, and try to force her to ban and burn the book throughout the entire state. This is the latest in the series of monthly play readings by The Alternative Truth Project, or La Crosse’s post-election resistance through theater movement. The reading will be followed by a discussion.
To celebrate our freedom to read, this week is Banned Books Week. UWL’s Murphy Library and the La Crosse Public Library will be co-hosting a new event called Banned Books Cabaret, where the public can sign up and perform some fun, daring, truth-poking cabaret entertainment about any banned book in any form they’d like. Individuals or groups are welcome. More info to come on the La Crosse Public Library and Murphy Library’s FaceBooks.
