The Summer We Got Saved Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Tab and Tina have lived sheltered lives, but when their progressive aunt Eugenia comes for her yearly visit, things are never to be the same again. Taken from their conservative town in Alabama to the Highlander Folk School, a place where blacks and whites live together while working for integration, Tab and Tina see just how similar people really are. A graduate of the Highlander school, Maudie has always known that she wanted to be involved in voter registration and literacy training. When she takes a job in a congregation determined to stonewall her, she has her work cut out. But she's determined to change their minds, especially Jessie who isn't her student by choice but who ends up teaching her more than she could ever have dreamed.
