200 Years of Forgotten Alabama Featuring Glenn Wills
Join us Saturday, January 19th at 1 PM for a presentation and book signing from Glenn Wills, author of Forgotten Alabama.
Alabama is celebrating her 200th birthday in 2019! As part of the Pelham Public Library’s centennial celebration,we are proud to host Alabama author and photographer, Glenn Wills, who made it his mission to capture thousands of beautiful images of neglected places in Alabama before they disappear. His haunting and poignant photographs accompanied his personal blog on his website and Facebook page. Mr. Wills traveled thousands of miles, visiting every county in Alabama to capture these places on film and sharing his experiences. His efforts eventually coalesced in the creation of the books, Forgotten Alabama and Forgotten Alabama 2.He is currently working on his third book in the series which will feature older structures from the early days of Alabama statehood. This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear his story, see a presentation of his work, and celebrate the bicentennial of our beautiful state. Books will be on sale for signing afterward. This event is free to attend, but seating is limited.
Please reserve your seat by calling 620-6418.
