NC READS Book Discussion: The Last Ballad
August 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
North Carolina Reads is North Carolina Humanities’ statewide book club for 2022. North Carolina Reads features five books that explore issues of racial, social, and gender equality and the history and culture of North Carolina. All five books pose critical questions about how North Carolinians view their role in helping to form a more just and inclusive society. Learn more about the book selections here.
The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash
Intertwining myriad voices, Wiley Cash brings to life the heartbreak and bravery of the now forgotten struggle of the labor movement in early twentieth-century America—and pays tribute to the thousands of heroic women and men who risked their lives to win basic rights for all workers. Registration is required to join our discussion of The Last Ballad as space is limited. Registration opens August 1. To register and join the conversation on August 23 at 6:30 pm in the Library’s Rogow Room, please call (828) 884-1830.
