reading and discussion series

 

DOVER, OH – The Dover Public Library will host a free five-part reading and discussion

series called “Making Sense of the American Civil War.” The library is one of more than 150

sites that will host the series, developed by the American Library Association and the National

Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support provided by the Ohio Humanities Council. Local support for the series is provided by the Friends of the Dover Public Library and the Dover Historical Society.  All programs will be held at the Dover Public Library, located at 525 N. Walnut St. in Dover.  For details or to register, please visit www.doverlibrary.org or contact the library at 330-343-6123.

 

“We are delighted to have been chosen to host this unique series that will allow patrons a chance to discuss the legacy of the Civil War with fellow community members and with the help of a well-qualified scholar,” said Jim Gill, library director.  Five group discussion events will be held at the library on the following works:

• “March” by Geraldine Brooks (Penguin, 2006)

• “Crossroads of Freedom: Antietam” by James McPherson (Oxford University Press,

2002)

• “America’s War: Talking About the Civil War and Emancipation on Their 150th

Anniversaries,” an anthology of historical fiction, speeches, diaries, memoirs, biography, and

short stories, edited by national project scholar Edward L. Ayers and co-published by NEH

and ALA.

 

Discussion events will begin at 7:00 PM and will be held on the following dates: Sept. 19, Oct. 3, Oct. 17, Oct. 31, and Nov. 7.  Dr. Kelly D. Selby of Dover will lead a discussion of the book at each session. Dr. Selby is an assistant professor at Walsh University, where she teaches U.S., Civil War, and Women’s history. She pursued her research interests in the history of nineteenth-century war and society at Kent State University, earning her Ph.D. in 2008.  She recently served on the CW 150 interpretive committee for the Ohio Historical Society.  To register for the program or to obtain copies of all program materials, please contact the Dover Public Library at 330-343-6123.
