9 Decades/9 Books

 May 1, 2014 to November 30, 2014

Celebrate the Washington Public Library's 90th Anniversary by reading through the decades!  We're challenging you to read one book that was published in each decade the library has been open.  Pick up your reading log at any of the circulation desks.  Reading lists will be available at the circulation desks to help you find a book, but you do not have to read a book from the list, any book originally published in the decade will count.  Prizes will be given and a "Finisher's Party" will be held in December for those who complete the challenge.

The Homefront in Civil War Missouri

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

3-4pm

Over one thousand Civil War engagements were fought in Missouri, and the conflict could not be quarantined from civilian life.  James Erwin, author of The Homefront in Civil War Missouri, will be sharing stories about the turbulence and bitterness of a war that was everywhere.  In the countryside, the wives and mothers of absent soldiers had to cope with marauders from both sides.  Children saw their fathers and brothers beaten, hanged, or shot.  In the cities, a cheer for Jeff Davis could land a young boy in jail, and a letter to a sweetheart in the Confederate army could get a girl banished from the state.

For everyone.
