B.B. Comer Memorial Library

B.B. Comer Library hosts the SouthFirst Bank Adult Lecture Series, “You Must Remember This” on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 with guest speaker, William Deutsch – “Alabama, The River State.”  Refreshments will begin at 11:00 a.m. followed by the program at noon.

Bill Deutsch has just published a new book, Alabama Rivers, A Celebration And Challenge. The author will give an overview of his book with an emphasis on the Coosa River Basin and the Sylacauga area. The reviews of Alabama Rivers are reason enough to come out to hear the author talk about the book which has been called “a remarkable composite of well-documented materials about Alabama’s incredible web of rivers.” One noted reviewer, R. Scott Duncan, who wrote the acclaimed Southern Wonder: Alabama’s Surprising Biodiversity, called Bill a “tireless river scientist who presents the great beauty of the state’s rivers, their unrivaled biodiversity, and the many ways these rivers sustain us.”
Dr. Bill Deutsch is a Research Fellow Emeritus in the Auburn University School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Environments. He co-founded the community-based water monitoring program, Alabama Water Watch, and directed the program for 20 years. He lives in the woods along Hodnett Creek near Auburn with his wife, Janet.
