You want drama? Heroes like Rosa Parks and villains like J. Edgar Hoover. Triumph over unbelievable odds. It's all there in the history of the civil rights movement, unbelievably detailed in a massive trilogy by Taylor Branch.

The Friend of Bill and Pulitzer Prize winner is speaking at 6 p.m. Monday in Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School. We're packing our Branch books down for autographs. It's free, but he should get a crowd.

Also Monday:

TRAVELER BASEBALL: Springfield, 7:10, $6 for adults.
MONDAY NIGHT JAZZ: Herman Green on sax with Joe Vick and Dave Rogers, Afterthought, 8, $10.
NICK AND RICHEY: Cajun's Wharf, 5:30 p.m., free.
SCARECROW GENTLEMEN WITH LUKE  JOHNSON: Easy Street Piano Bar, 8, free.
DELL SMITH EXPERIENCE: Juanita's, 8.
