We made the trip to Montgomery for the second annaul Alabama Book Festival. This year’s festival was twice as big as last year, taking up two city blocks of Old Alabama Town. There were even a few more authors speaking. Including Pulitzer-prize winner Robert Olen Butler.
Hopefully more folks will come out next year and the event will keep growing. Here is a pretty pitiful write up in Montgomery’s local paper. The reporter didn’t really look into the festival or what it was about. I think they missed a great opportunity for a neat human interest story.
