Book Discussion on Civil War Continues

Thomas Prasch of Washburn University will lead a discussion of The March by E. L. Doctorow at 6:30 on December 15 at Parsons Public Library. TK_Prasch

The final book in the four-part “Civil War” book discussion series follows General William Tecumseh Sherman’s famous march, the scorched-earth tromping of Union forces across George and the Carolinas.  Doctorow provides a perspective that blends panoramic overview with local experience, and mixes fictional characters with historical figures.

Copies of the book The March are available for checkout from the library now.

The discussion leader, Thomas Prasch, is a professor and chairs the history department at Washburn University.  He received his Ph.D. in history from Indiana University.

The Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) book discussion series is provided by the Kansas Humanities Council (KHC), a nonprofit cultural organization with over 40 years of experience promoting the understanding of the history and ideas that shape our lives and build community.  For more information about KHC, visit www.kansashumanities.org.

Members of the community are invited to attend the free program, which will take place at the library, 311 South 17th St.  To check out books and for more information about the reading series, contact the library at 620-421-5920.
