The public is invited to a coloring party with Laura Murray, author and illustrator of "Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Its 67 Counties," on Thursday, Oct. 26, at 4 p.m. at Pebble Hill.

Murray’s book is a one-of-a-kind coloring book whose publication coincides with two significant bicentennial celebrations: the 2017 anniversary of Alabama becoming a territory and the 2019 anniversary of Alabama becoming a state. It is designed to engage coloring book enthusiasts in learning about our nation’s 22nd state. Every county in Alabama is featured in Amazing Alabama with line drawings of its iconic and lesser-known sites―historical, geographical, topographical, industrial and commercial and more. Companion text identifies and provides context for the pictured elements. The book provides a comprehensive educational snapshot of all that is special about the state. 

Laura Murray is a talented pen-and-ink illustrator with a background in graphic design and a passion for coloring books. "Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Alabama’s 67 Counties" is the first coloring book of her own design. See more of her work at her website.

The event is free, open to the public and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St.
