Book Discussion Program – The Gilded Age – Then and Now   We are making this program available through zoom with new dates.  If you are interested, please contact the library and we will put you in the email with the link.  At this time you can pick up future books through Curb Side Pick Up

This book discussion series meets monthly. Sign out a book from the Cobleigh to participate. The first book is Last Days of Night by Graham Moore. Books span the time from the 1893 Columbian Exposition to the Gilded Age.  Portrayals of inventors, entrepreneurs, artists and lawyers include Henry James, Stanford White, Clarence Darrow, George Westinghouse, Thomas Edison, D.W. Griffiths and detective William Burns. Three novels and a narrative history illustrate that spectacular time period in ways that in turn illuminate our own era.

The schedule is:

Thursday, July 9th at 7:00 p.m. American Lightning: Terror, Mystery, and the Birth of Hollywood and the Crime of the Century by Howard Blum

Thursday, August 13th at 7:00 p.m. Maze at Windermere by Gregory Blake Smith

The discussion sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council is free and open to the public with Suzanne Brown as the discussion leader.  Extra copies of the books are available at the library to check out through Curb Side Service.  The Cobleigh Library is accessible.
