The Great American Read Book Series: Session 1
Thursday, September 6th | 6:00pm - 7:30pmFree
The Great American Read is an ambitious educational and community outreach campaign developed by PBS. It is designed to get the country reading and talking about books. From the 100 suggested titles, this series will explore books representing three different genres.
University of the Cumberlands Professor Kathy Fish will discuss Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women from the classic genre during Session 1. It’s the heartwarming story of the March sisters-Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth-and the courage, humor, and ingenuity they display to survive poverty and the absence of their father during the Civil War.
Prior to each session, a limited number of books will be available for checkout at the Circulation Desk while supplies last.
The library makes every reasonable effort to provide equal access to all patrons. Please contact us at (606) 864-5759 at least three days in advance to request accommodations.
