Miami University Libraries has been awarded a "Let’s Talk About It: The Civil War” reading and discussion program grant. This grant is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
This discussion program will take place between October and May of next year. We will be reading several books about the Civil War, including March by Geraldine Brooks (King Library (2nd floor) | PR9619.3.B7153 M37 2005) and Crossroads of Freedom: Antietam by James McPherson (King Library (2nd floor) | E474.65 .M48 2002). There will also be a kick-off symposium (sponsored by the Humanities Center) where we will highlight relevant library collections, hear from local scholars, and learn about local history. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the start of the program.
