GRU University Libraries’ first meeting of the Let’s Talk About It: Understanding the American Civil War book discussion series will take place on January 18, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. on the second floor of Reese Library, on the Summerville campus.
Participants can still check out book sets from Reese Library during normal operating hours. The first book in the series is March, by Geraldine Brooks. From Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story “filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man” (Sue Monk Kidd). With “pitch-perfect writing” (USA Today), Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. Discussion will be led by GRU professor and head of History, Anthropology and Philosophy, Hubert van Tuyll.
All events for Let’s Talk About It: Understanding the American Civil War are free and open to the public. Funding to support this series is provided by the Georgia Humanities Council.
