Since it is the 150th anniversary of Civil War, the Waynesville library has decided to make the momentous war the subject of one of its “Let’s Talk About It” series.
The series begins June 6 with meetings from 4-6 p.m. every three weeks in the library auditorium.
In the books chosen for this series, the novelists use their imaginative powers to recreate the greatest upheaval in our history in a way that touches emotions and senses as well as intellect.
The novels are as follows: The March by E.L. Doctorow (June 6); On the Occasion of My Last Afternoon by Kay Gibbons (June 27); The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara (July 18); Enemy Women by Paulette Jiles (Aug. 8); and Lincoln’s Dream by Connie Willis (Aug. 22).
The books are available at the Waynesville branch. Ask for Teresa Glance to sign out a book. There is no charge for the books.
“Let’s Talk About It” is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council in partnership with the North Carolina Center for the Book.
