Book Talk and Signing

The public is invited to a book talk by Laura Murray, author and illustrator of Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Its 67 Counties.

Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Alabama’s 67 Counties is a one-of-a-kind coloring book whose publication coincides with two significant bicentennial celebrations: the 2017 anniversary of Alabama becoming a territory and the 2019 anniversary of Alabama becoming a state. It is designed to engage coloring book enthusiasts in learning about the unique character of our nation’s 22nd state. Every county in Alabama is featured in Amazing Alabama with line drawings of its iconic and lesser-known sites--historical, geographical, topographical, industrial and commercial, and more. Companion text identifies and provides context for the pictured elements. The book provides a comprehensive educational snapshot of all that is special about the state. 

Laura Murray is a talented pen-and-ink illustrator with a background in graphic design and a passion for coloring books. Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Alabama’s 67 Counties is the first coloring book of her own design. Her work reveals an affection for and familiarity with the state of Alabama born of extensive travel and research. You can see more of her work at www.lauramurraycreative.com.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
