[Library Events & Programs] Let's Talk About It: Making Sense of the American Civil War

Beginning January 10, 2013 Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library will host Making Sense of the American Civil War, a scholar-led reading and discussion program. This program is organized as a five-part series of conversations that aim to get below the surface of familiar stories about the Civil War battles to explore the complex challenges brought on by the war.

All sessions will take place Thursday evenings, 6:00 - 7:30 pm, in the Memphis Room at the Central Library.

The facilitator will be Timothy S. Huebner, Professor and Chair of the Department of History and the L. Palmer Brown Professor of Interdisciplinary Humanities at Rhodes College.
Selected readings for this series:

March by Geraldine Brooks

Making Sense of the American Civil War is presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities, American Library Association, Humanities Tennessee, and local support from the Memphis Library Foundation.
