From 6/27/2023 to 9/26/2023, Latham Memorial Library will host the book discussion series A Hard Look at America. Established by a newspaper publisher and coinciding with the founding of a journalism school at Columbia University, the Pulitzer Prizes have continually recognized excellence in journalism. The books in this series, comprised of Pulitzer-winning reporting and research, dig deep, revealing facts and stories that continue to be relevant years after they were brought to the surface.
All discussions will take place at 7:00 pm in the Reading Room on the main floor of the library, except for the first discussion which will be held at the Peabody Library in Post Mills.
- June 27 AT PEABODY LIBRARY: Sheri Fink, Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital *At Peabody Library*
