Community Wide Read Presents: Wicked City

Huntsville-Madison County Public Library presents the 2011 Community Wide Read: Madison County reads Wicked City by Ace Atkins.


The purpose of Community Wide Read is to encourage an entire community to read the same book in promotion of literary reading.  Using Wicked City as a platform, an additional goal is to examine Alabama and U.S. history from the 1950s, with specific emphasis on the past and contemporary history of Phenix City, Alabama.

To get started please view the links below providing event information, resources on our selected book Wicked City and its author Ace Atkins, and a discussion guide.

Project is co-sponsored by the ALABAMA HUMANITIES FOUNDATION, a state program of the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES.
