Alabama is home to many famous story-tellers. This got us curious about local Huntsville authors.

Robert Bailey is a Huntsville author that Bookshelf is asked for all the time. In fact, someone called and asked for a Robert Bailey book while we were in the store.

Huntsville-Madison County Public Library offers a guide to Alabama authors. Homer Hickam and H.E. Fancis are listed as notable Huntsville authors. Which books will you be picking up?
