In 1942, Alice Allison Dunnigan, a sharecropper’s daughter from Kentucky, made her way to the nation’s capital and a career in journalism that eventually led her to the White House. With “Alone Atop the Hill”, Carol McCabe Booker has condensed Dunnigan’s 1974 self-published autobiography to appeal to a general audience and has added scholarly annotations that provide historical context. Dunnigan’s dynamic story reveals her importance to the fields of journalism, women’s history, and the civil rights movement and creates a compelling portrait of a groundbreaking American. Ms. Booker will discuss her book and the events that inspired it. Register to attend this talk by calling 301-475-4200, ext. 71658, or stop by the reception desk to sign up.
