Friends of the Haywood Library offer the second book discussion in the summer Let’s Talk About It series Journeys Across Time and Place : Mapping Southern Identities on July 11 at the Waynesville branch auditorium. The book Nowhere Else on Earth by Josephine Humphreys is available free at the library. See Teresa Glance. For the protagonist Rhonda Strong “there was nowhere else” besides Scuffletown. It was hard for strangers to reach both physically and culturally. Author Humphreys did extensive historical research to tell the story of the Lumbee Indian people along the Lumbee River in southeastern North Carolina and their resistance to the Confederacy and white rule in the nineteenth century.
Dr. Margaret (Peg) Harman, professor emeritus at Pfeiffer University, will lead the book discussion. The book discussion will be held from 4 PM until 6 PM, July 11, at the Waynesville branch auditorium. Let’s Talk About It is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council and the Haywood Friends of the Library. The public is invited. One can attend any one or all of the discussions in the series. For additional information, contact Linda Arnold at 456-5311 or email@example.com .
