Civil War Book Discussion
Posted by daccurso on 10/10/11
Come join us as we discuss the book, 1861: The Civil War Awakening by Adam Goodheart
“[The] revolution began years before the first guns opened, as a gradual change in the hearts and minds of men and women, until suddenly, in the months before the attack on [Fort] Sumter, this transformation attained irresistible momentum. One person at a time, millions of Americans decided in 1861—as their grandparents had in 1776—that it was worth risking everything, their lives and fortunes, on their country. Not just on its present reality . . . but on a vision of what its future could be and what its past had meant. . . Eighteen sixty-one, like 1776 was—and still is—not just a year, but an idea.” (From 1861 by Adam Goodheart)

Location: Dunton Room

Schedule a Book Talk for Your Group

Does your book group need suggestions for books that prompt great discussions? Would your PTA group like to know about the latest books? Or maybe your women’s club would like to learn about literary fiction for women. These are just some of the book talk topics that library staff members can offer your group.
If your group meets in Arlington Heights, we will come to your meeting. That includes homes or public meeting places. We can also arrange for your group to come to the Library.
We prefer a minimum of ten attendees and that half of the attendees are A.H. residents. If you would like to schedule a book talk or want more information, contact Anne Harmel, Advisory Specialist, at 847-870-4117 or email@example.com.
