Book Discussion: The Armies of the Night
December 12, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A Hard Look at America: a book discussion series sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council
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.
The last book in the series:
Dec. 12: Norman Mailer, The Armies of the Night: History as a Novel, the Novel as History
Winner of America’s two highest literary awards [the Pulitzer and the National Book Award], The Armies of the Night uniquely and unforgettably captures the Sixties’ tidal wave of love and rage at its crest and a towering genius at his peak. – Amazon.com
The discussions will be led by Vermont Humanities Scholar Mary Hays.
Copies of the book are available at the Library.
