‘Lincoln’s Dreams’ concludes Civil War-based talks

Written by 

The Friends of the Library will present the final novel in the “Let’s Talk About It: Civil War Novels” discussion series, Lincoln’s Dreams, at 4 p.m. Aug. 22 in the Waynesville library auditorium. Emory Maiden, professor at Appalachian State University, will lead the discussion.

Written by Connie Willis, an award-winning science fiction author, Lincoln’s Dreams focuses on a young woman, Annie, who is haunted by nightmares and seeks out the historical context of her visions. In the novel, the readers discover a somber connection between Annie’s tribulations and the haunted, tragic lives of real historic figures like Robert E. Lee and Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln’s Dreams is one of the most unusual and powerful Civil War novels in recent years.

See Teresa Glance to sign out a copy of the book between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“Let’s Talk About It” is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities and the North Carolina Center for the Book.
