 ‘Let’s Talk About It’ is a series of five conversations exploring different facets of the Civil War experience, informed by reading the words written or uttered by powerful voices from the past and present. In part two of the series, we will be discussing selections including Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address, which take us directly to the division that was taking place across the county. Discussions will be led by Dr. Randall Fuller, author of ‘From Battlefields Rising: How the Civil War Transformed American Literature.” Essential readings are available at the branch. Presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
