Hester Bass, author of the picture-book biography The Secret World of Walter Anderson, joins us to discuss the peaceful integration of Huntsville schools with her new book Seeds of Freedom.  After learning about the history of the first integrated public school in Alabama, Hester was deeply impressed by the choices made by the people of Huntsville, both black and white, to face the struggle for change with a positive outlook and a firm commitment to nonviolence.  She dedicates this book to them. 

Hester Bass was born in Atlanta and grew up in rural Georgia.  Today she visits classrooms and libraries to inspire children to make their dreams come true, utilizing her many years as a performer. Hester also volunteers with the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Local author, Scott Phillips, will be at the Madison Library on Thursday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss his new book, Remove Before Flight. As a ten-year-old boy inspired by fellow Ohioan, Neil Armstrong, when he landed on the moon in 1969, Scott dreamed of someday becoming part of something larger than himself. Ten years later, through a series of serendipitous life events, Scott Phillips embarked on a career with NASA's groundbreaking Space Shuttle Program. He was the last team member to exit the first External Tank prior to its maiden flight on April 12, 1981, and saved the Remove Before Flight ribbon as a memento. What followed was an extraordinary 33-year adventure, encompassing the entire span of the program -- from the depths of tragedy to the exclusive never-before-seen photos and first-hand stories. Remove Before Flight takes the reader on a historical and personal journey that will enlighten and entertain. Read more about Local Author, Scott Phillips, to Visit Madison Library
