Sponsored by the Friends of the CSU Michael Schwartz Library
On Wednesday, November 18, 2009, the campus community is invited to attend the Friends of the Library book discussion on Beyond the River: The Untold Story of the Heroes of the Underground Railroad by Ann Hagedorn. From the highest hill above the town of Ripley, Ohio, you can see five bends in the Ohio River. You can see the hills of northern Kentucky and the rooftops of Ripley's riverfront houses. And you can see what the abolitionist John Rankin saw from his house at the top of that hill, where for nearly forty years he placed a lantern each night to guide fugitive slaves to freedom beyond the river.
The discussion, led by Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at Cleveland Public Library, begins at 3:00 in Rhodes Tower, Room 503. Refreshments will be served.
Mark your calendar:
Spring book discussions include: Lies Will Take You Somewhere, by Sheila Schwartz, Wednesday, January 27; People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks; Wednesday, February 24; and Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell, Wednesday, March 31. And as part of the Annual Local Authors Book Talk Series, Mary Doria Russell, winner of nine national and international literary awards, will visit CSU on April 14, 2010 at 3:00 in RT 503.
