An Evening of Montevallo History
Eclipse Coffee & Books will host Montevallo Memories on Thursday, September 9th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. To celebrate the re-release of Eloise Meroney’s Montevallo: The First One Hundred Years, Dr. Mike Mahan will serve as the moderator of a panel of long-time Montevallo denizens who will share their memories of their home town. Audience members are invited to share their memories as well or ask questions of the panelists. Speakers will include Carmichael Library's own Barbara Belisle, as well as J. A. Brown, John Kirby and Bill Plott. Copies of the Meroney book will be available with proceeds to benefit the Montevallo Historical Society.
Also, if local history is your thing you won't want to miss the current gallery exhibit at Parnell Memorial Library, Montevallo Downtown "Over the Years." The exhibit is curated by Becky Bolton Crisswell and will remain on display through October 20th.
