UA celebrating 100th birthday of William Bradford Huie

The University of Alabama is joining in the celebration of Hartselle native William Bradford Huie.
Huie, a prolific writer who covered topics ranging from World War II to Civil Rights, would have turned 100 Nov. 13. In honor of the event, UA is hosting an array of events as part of a “William Bradford Huie @100” celebration.
Events will kick off Nov. 3 with an all-day event involving high school students from around the state, including representatives from Hartselle High School. The event will include workshops in fiction, journalism, history, historical fiction, screenwriting and more.
That night at 7 p.m., a play by Billy Field about Huie’s life will be presented at the Bama Theater.
A talk will be presented Nov. 9 in Mary Harmon Bryant Hall. Huie’s widow, Martha Huie, and Wayne Greenhaw of Hartselle, will be speaking before a special collection on his work will be unveiled. Martha Huie recently presented materials from her late husband to the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library at UA. Huie graduated UA in 1930.
On Nov. 10, a screening of “Wild River,” a movie based in part of Huie’s first novel, Mud on the Stars, will be presented. The event will take place at the Bama Theater.
The celebration will continue early next year when the Hartselle Fine Arts Center will host Hank Klibanoff, who won a Pulitzer Prize for this book, “The Race Beat.” Klibanoff, who’s now a professor at Emory, will be speaking about Huie’s journalism in the 1960s.
