Meet the author John Dersham

September 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Meet the author of Alabama’s newest bicentennial publication, “My Alabama – John Dersham Photographs A State,”
Mr. Dersham will share images from his travels around the state.
Copies of the books will be for sale ($40). Mr. Dersham will sign books after the program.
The event is free. All welcome.

About the book:
In My Alabama, Dersham presents two hundred images revealing the diversity and bounty of the twenty-second state as it celebrates its two hundredth anniversary of statehood. The book is loosely organized around the four seasons, and its images are mostly landscapes, though the built environment makes appearances ― from the busy port of Mobile to rural churches and schools to small-town streetscapes.
No other Alabama picture book ranges across the entire state like this one, and Dersham’s images are a visual feast. Brief captions provide location data and key facts; a few interspersed short essays offer additional background. An index links places and themes, and a photo log reveals how and when specific images were made.
