We are pleased to announce that T. K. Thorne, author of Last Chance for Justice: How Relentless Investigators Uncovered New Evidence Convicting the Birmingham Church Bombers, will be our guest speaker at this year’s LWVGB Holiday Luncheon. The luncheon will be held at The Club (atop Birmingham’s Red Mountain), on December 3, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. We will likely fill to capacity for this event, so please make your reservation A.S.A.P..

We are excited that members and guests of the Greater Birmingham League will have the opportunity to hear Thorne speak on
Last Chance for Justice. She brings to life the tragic event of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing and the struggle for justice that followed. Thorne is a compelling story-teller and a meticulous historian. She is also the former Executive Director of Birmingham’s Citizen Action Partnership (CAP) and is recently retired after many years of service. Thorne now spends much of her time on book tours around the country. She is the winner of several awards for her historical nonfiction books Noah’s Wife and Angels at the Gate. Read more about T. K. Thorne at https://tkthorne.com/books/. Her books will be available at the event. If you have her books, you are welcomed to bring them and she will sign.

FYI, T. K. (or Teresa, as we know her) is the daughter of the late Jane Katz, a forceful lobbyist for the LWV of Alabama years ago at the state legislature. In her honor, the “Jane Katz Award” is given each year by LWVAL to “recognize an individual or organization whose work strengthens democracy.”


We look forward to seeing you at
The Club on December 3rd!
