Six Bridges Book Festival: Rachel Louise Martin & Monica Potts
In A Most Tolerant Little Town, historian Rachel Louise Martin weaves together over a dozen perspectives to tell the forgotten story of the first school to attempt court-mandated desegregation in the wake of 1954’s Brown v. Board of Education decision.
In Monica Potts’s New York Times bestselling memoir The Forgotten Girls, an acclaimed journalist tries to understand how she escaped the confines of her small town in Arkansas while her brilliant friend could not, illuminating the unemployment, drug abuse, sexism, and evangelicalism killing poor, rural white women all over America.
