    Author Talk with Rosalie Turner, Author of  March with Me

    Researchers, writers, readers, and anyone interested in the history of the Civil Rights Movement will want to pick up a copy of the newly published novel March with Me by Birminghamian Rosalie Turner. Turner is receiving critical praise for this coming-of-age story portraying two young women—one black and one white—who experience segregation in Birmingham from different perspectives. The Birmingham Public Library will host Rosalie Turner on Sunday, May 5 at 3:00 p.m. in the Richard Arrington Auditorium of the Central Library located at 2100 Park Place in downtown. Turner will speak about her wish for racial reconciliation and her hope that this novel will continue this important discussion. The program is free and open to the public. Copies of the novel will be available for purchase.

    March with Me’s climax centers around the Birmingham Civil Rights Movement’s pivotal Children’s March, when hundreds of school students marched in downtown Birmingham in May of 1963 to protest Jim Crow laws. Many students were arrested. It’s during this event when the lives of Turner’s two fictional young women, Letitia and Martha Ann, become entwined.
