Went to see Storm Warning movie I blogged about
By Pam. This was a not-well-publicized Round Rock Reads event [even library employees at the movie admitted that], and the LAST RR Reads event on Crusade for Justice. There were only 10 people other than the author Ken Anderson and library staff. Ken, who had never heard of the movie, watched it with us. When he spoke after the movie he said "wow", then "no resemblance to Dan Moody's life".... I beg to differ. It was a dark movie, but KKK is a dark subject. Ronald Reagan was great. This was the only movie Doris Day ever died in - no funny business here. I asked Ken how he researched for the book. He said by looking at 365 days x 7 years of Austin American (morning and afternoon editions) on microfilm/fiche (I get those mixed up). I also asked about other books about Moody or Fergusons. He said no one has written any except there is a book on Ma Ferguson that is quite good. He laughed and said he isn't really welcomed in Bell County anymore!
