Book Reading and Discussion Series 2017
Let’s Talk About It is a library discussion series that brings scholars and community members together to explore how selected books illuminate a particular theme. The Havelock-Craven County Public Library and Lifetime Learning Center are partners in presenting this nine-week series. The Thursday night programs include an opportunity to read five books and interact with five visiting scholars to learn more about the authors and to discuss the books.
Meeting dates for this year’s programs are on Thursdays, from February 23 to April 20, at the Havelock Library from 6 to 8 p.m. The program is free.
Please call the Havelock Library at (252) 447-7509 to register for the program.
This year’s theme – MAD WOMEN IN THE ATTIC
What happens to a woman whose behavior defies social and domestic expectations? Perhaps she is locked in an attic; more often she is a woman involved in a quest to discover her identity. These works may help us redefine what is a “mad woman.”
