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.
