Brown Bag Lunch Program - See Alabama First: The Story of Alabama Tourism
May 22, 2013
Tourism in the Southeast is often associated with Florida—a state that essentially defined the industry in America. Yet Alabama has a fascinating history of tourism all its own from restored and preserved historic destinations to campy tourist traps and outrageous roadside attractions. Join Birmingham author Tim Hollis, who has traveled from the Shoals to the coast and amassed an unrivaled knowledge of Alabama tourism, as he discusses his new book See Alabama First: The Story of Alabama Tourism. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing. This program is part of BPL’s Brown Bag Lunch Program series. The programs are held on scheduled Wednesdays for the lunchtime crowd in the Arrington Auditorium at the Central Library and at selected branches. There is no charge and the library provides free beverages.
