Indiana premiere


A determined librarian and a segregationist senator face off over an innocent children’s book in 1959 Montgomery, Alabama. Depicting the marriage of two rabbits – who happen to have different-colored fur – the story has Sen. E.W. Higgins calling for a book ban. But even as the pressure mounts, Indiana raised and educated  librarian, Emily Wheelock Reed refuses to yield to censorship. Inspired by true events, Alabama Story is a stirring testament to free expression, just as the civil rights movement is flowering.  Political foes, star-crossed lovers, and one feisty children’s author inhabit the same page to conjure a Deep South of the imagination. 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of these true events.
