Sep 16    Book Chat - Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon


Book Chat
 

Telegraph Avenue - Michael Chabon
 

Mon. Sept 16th   6:00 –7:30 pm
Cartersville Public Library


As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there—longtime friends, bandmates, and co-regents of Brokeland Records, a kingdom of used vinyl located in the borderlands of Berkeley and Oakland. Their wives are the Berkeley Birth Partners, two semi-legendary midwives who have welcomed more than a thousand newly minted citizens into the dented utopia at whose heart—half tavern, half temple—stands Brokeland.  When ex-NFL quarterback Gibson Goode, the fifth-richest black man in America, announces plans to build his latest Dogpile megastore on a nearby stretch of Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear it means certain doom for their vulnerable little enterprise. Meanwhile, Aviva and Gwen also find themselves caught up in a battle for their professional existence, one that tests the limits of their friendship.

An intimate epic, a NorCal Middlemarch set to the funky beat of classic vinyl soul-jazz and pulsing with a virtuosic, pyrotechnical style all its own, Telegraph Avenue is the great American novel we've been waiting for. Generous, imaginative, funny, moving, thrilling, humane, triumphant, it is Michael Chabon's most dazzling book yet.

Sep 18    Bartow History Museum Lunch & Learn: Thunder at Chickamauga
Thunder at Chickamauga

One hundred and fifty years after North and South clashed in the second bloodiest battle in our nation’s long history, the forests, fields, and hills of Chickamauga Battlefield are so peaceful that some visitors overlook the fact that more than 35,000 men were captured, wounded, or died on this ground.  On Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from noon until 1:00 p.m., Bartow History Museum welcomes guest speaker and editor of Georgia Backroads magazine, Dan Roper, who will discuss the Battle of Chickamauga. 

Remembering the soldiers shrouded in smoke, thunder, and death, the staff at Georgia Backroads magazine selected five battlefield locations and events as illustrative of the drama, valor, and immense loss played out on this ground.  From those five locations, Mr. Roper will focus on Northwest Georgia’s famous Battle of Chickamauga- which recognizes its 150th anniversary from September 19th-20th.

Lunch and Learn will take place at the Bartow History Museum located at 4 E. Church Street in downtown Cartersville.  Parking is available next to the building.  The lecture is free to members and included with the price of admission for not-yet members.  Guests are invited to bring a lunch beginning at 11:45 a.m., and the program will begin at noon.  For more information on this and other BHM programs, call 770-382-3818, ext. 6288 or visit our website at www.bartowhistorymuseum.org.
