In the spring of 2014, representatives of the Alabama Center for the Book and the Alabama Writers’ Forum with a committee of readers, writers, and scholars met to decide how best to honor the rich legacy of native Alabamians who earned their reputations in the literary arts. From these initial meetings, came the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame. Like the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, and the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame, the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame recognizes those professionals who have proved outstanding in their field.
The current exhibition includes works from the 2016 Class: T. S. Stribling, Margaret Walker, Mary Ward Brown, Truman Capote, E. O. Wilson, Fannie Flagg, Rodney Jones, Rebecca Gilman, and Sequoyah.
Exhibit currator: Martha Bace
