Book T.A.L.K. (Talk About Literature in Kansas)
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We continue our Humanities Kansas Book TALK spring series The Civil War. Our second book is The March by E.L. Doctorow. In 1864, Union general William T. Sherman marched his sixty thousand troops through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the Carolinas. Sherman’s army fought off Confederate forces, demolished cities, and accumulated a borne-along population of freed blacks and white refugees until all that remained was the dangerous transient life of the dispossessed and the triumphant. In E. L. Doctorow’s hands the great march becomes a floating world, a nomadic consciousness, and an unforgettable reading experience with awesome relevance to our own times. The March is the winner of multiple awards and a New York Times Bestseller. Our discussion leader will be Sister Rosemary Kolich. Copies of the book are available at the library. All are welcome to join us.
