    Book Description:
    It was an innocent Halloween party until a photographer arrived and later posted the images on the Internet. When the world saw what went on behind closed doors of wealthy and privileged frat boys, the campus erupted and so to did the city. No one could have imagined that the deplorable activities, seen in the pictures, could have taken place in the twenty-first century. What started as a party, quickly evolves into a civil war among various factions of the administration, students and outsiders. A small group of black men descend upon the town of Auburn to negotiate retribution for offended black students while a small underground army lurks in the shadows waiting for the chance to riot. The administration makes several attempts to make the problems disappear. But the number of protesters, calling for swift and harsh consequences, grows every hour. None more surprising than a group of star athletes who threaten to bring the entire city to its knees by foiling the biggest sporting event of the year. Based on a true story, An Auburn Autumn is a fast-paced and passionate story about what happens when power, class, race, money and big college football collide in a brewing and disastrous perfect storm that sweeps across the plains of a small Alabama town.
