Brunch and a Book
MWR & R.F. Sink Library Hosts Authors for Brunch and a Book
Do you know who Nannie Haskins was? Join Robert F. Sink Memorial Library as we host two of the book authors for “The Diary of Nannie Haskins Williams: A Southern Woman’s Story of Rebellion and Reconstruction, 1863-1890” during our monthly Brunch and a Book on September 16 at noon.
The diary relates the story of a teenage girl living in Clarksville during the Civil War and becoming a woman in the midst of Reconstruction. Unknown for years, Nannie Haskins achieved national fame when Ken Burns quoted her extensively in his TV series "The Civil War" in the 1990s. For over a century, the two halves of the work were separated with the Civil War portion in the Tennessee State Library and the Reconstruction part at the University of North Carolina. Now presented to the public in its entirety for the first time, the diary was published by the University of Tennessee Press in April, 2014.
Dr. Ellen Kanervo from the Arts and Heritage Development Council and Mrs. Eleanor Williams, the Montgomery County Historian, will explain the editing process of preparing the work for publication and how they researched the life of Nannie Haskins.
Brunch and a Book is held on the third Tuesday of every month at noon. It’s free to attend and refreshments will be provided - you are welcome to bring a dish to share but it’s not required.
Thank you to our Premier Sponsors for making this program possible – Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union, Mathews Nissan, and USAA. Sponsorship does not imply Army endorsement. See AR 215-1, para. 11-8d.
