Lecture by Allen Tullos, March 7, 2011

On March 7 at 5 pm in Smith Hall 205 on the University of Alabama campus, Emory Professor of American Studies, Alabama native, and University of Alabama graduate Allen Tullos will be speaking about his new book, Alabama Getaway: The Political Imaginary and the Heart of Dixie. Howell Raines writes that Tullos’ book “stands in the first rank of indispensable books” about Alabama and Robin D.G. Kelley calls it “American Studies at its best.” This event is cosponsored by New College. More information about Alabama Getaway can be found courtesy of the University of Georgia Press here. Please join us for what should be a provocative and stimulating discussion of where Alabama stands today and what its future holds.
