On Thursday May 25, Rockingham Library will host two community discussions about Ronald Kidd’s novel “Night on Fire” - one at 12 noon and one at 6:00 p.m. - so that as many community members as possible can participate. “Night on Fire” is accessible to readers age 13 on up,including adults. Stop by the Library and pick up a copy of the book today.
In this book, author Ronald Kidd introduces readers to thirteen-year-old Billie Simms, who doesn’t think her town of Anniston, Alabama should be segregated. But few of the town residents agree. When the Freedom Riders travel through Anniston on their way to Montgomery, angry grumbles soon turn to brutality as Anniston residents show just how deep their racism runs. Billie is now faced with a choice: stand idly by in silence or take a stand for what she believes in.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, go to rockinghamlibrary.org, call (802) 463-4270, email
