Our ‘Summer Reading Series’ continues with a truly unique memoir from one of the Bluff City’s most tumultuous times. We’re talking about the years surrounding the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It’s told by a white woman, who came here as a child when her dad became a top deputy of then-mayor Henry Loeb.
