LET’S TALK ABOUT IT @ HAYWOOD COUNTY LIBRARY
from press release
This spring and summer Haywood County Library offers two Let’s Talk About It series. Last summer when Dr. Merritt Moseley led two of our book discussions, we found out that he has a special interest in Jane Austen and we found out that many of you would like to do an Austen series. So Dr. Moseley is creating a series for the NC Humanities and Haywood Friends will be the first to evaluate it.
The books under discussion are:
Sense and Sensibility on May 17
Pride and Prejudice on June 14
Persuasion on July 19.
Books are free and will be available April 30 at the Waynesville branch. Contact Teresa Glance in the library office to sign out a book.. The discussions will be held in the Waynesville branch in the auditorium, 4 to 6. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Linda Arnold at 456-5311 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There are several Austen movies which will be shown in the weeks between the book discussions if there is enough interest.
The second series is novels of the Civil War. For the sesquicentennial, thelibrary here will have a traveling exhibition during the summer. Kathy Olsen has planned a Barbara Bates Smith performance as well.
This series begins June 6 with 3 week intervals, meeting in the library auditorium, 4 to 6 p.m.
