Book T.A.L.K. (Talk About Literature in Kansas)
March 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day First of the month, happening 3 times
Our spring series in the Humanities Kansas Book TALK series will be The Civil War. After commemorating the Civil War sesquicentennial from 2011-2015, the reasons to continue exploring its impact are clear. No political dispute has come closer to destroying the United States and its legacy today remains unresolved. Contemporary disputes over the display of Confederate flags and monuments, the ongoing debate of “state’s rights,” and the continued struggle of African-Americans to claim a full share of political rights and economic power in America reflect the continuing legacy of the Civil War on contemporary America.
We’ll read three books in this series. The first is The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane and our first discussion will be Friday, February 7. Copies of the book are now available at the library. Please join us for a fascinating discussion.
