Book Discussion Program – The Gilded Age – Then and Now

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, February 27th at 7:00 p.m. The Last Day of Night by Graham Moore

Thursday, March 26th at 7:00 p.m. Lake on Fire by Rosellen Brown

Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m. American Lightning: Terror, Mystery, and the Birth of Hollywood and the Crime of the Century by Howard Blum

Thursday, May 21 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.  The Cobleigh Library is accessible.
