misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Non-Fiction Book Club: Manhunt : The Twelve-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Desk   845-485-3445 x3702   adultevents@poklib.org
    The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror. A Confederate sympathizer and a member of a celebrated acting family, John Wilkes Booth threw away his fame and wealth for a chance to avenge the South's defeat. Based on rare archival materials, obscure trial transcripts, and Lincoln's own blood relics, this book is a fully documented work, but it is also a tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal, an hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of the hunted and the hunters.

    Big Read Coordinator Jewel Ratzlaff leads a discussion of one major theme in Fahrenheit 451.

Bradbury says he wrote the book to warn us of the dangers of television; portraying mindless, soul-less consumers of entertainment. Are they happy? How can happiness be measured? What about today?
