Bath Library Offers Two Great Events In Late October
Hot Springs, Va – The Bath County Public Library has two great programs coming up. The first program is on Monday night October 25 at 7pm. Adam Miller an American folk musician will be performing for us. For over a decade award winning folk singer and auto harp virtuoso Adam Miller has presented multi cultural “Singing Through History” folk music programs at schools and libraries throughout the United States. These acclaimed programs aid in the development of cultural and historical literacy emphasizing the importance of history as a story well told. Audiences have a great time learning about American Folklore while singing along.
The second program that we are doing is a book discussion and reading on Thursday night October 28 at 7pm. Did you know that To Kill A Mockingbird turned fifty this year? Harper Lee’s classic about a courtroom drama in the segregated South – the plot and characters are loosely based on the author’s observations of her family and neighbors as well as an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936.
Few books have ever achieved the success of To Kill A Mockingbird and few have ever gained the same amount of controversy. The presentation on To Kill A Mockingbird will be presented by Professor Lawrence Wayne Markert from Hollins University. Professor Markert is teaching a course on Southern American Literature. He has a PhD from Oxford University and has written numerous books and articles. We look forward to seeing you at the Bath County Public Library.
