NC Reads… The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash
March 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Wake Forest Historical Museum is excited to announce that it will be part of North Carolina Humanities’ statewide book club for 2022. We will join libraries, museums, and individuals across the state in reading books that explore issues of racial, social, and gender equality and the history and culture of North Carolina.
On March 30, we’ll meet at the museum at 6 pm to discuss The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash. At 7 pm, we’ll join people across the state in watching a live conversation with the book’s author and Dr. David Zonderman, professor of history at NC State. This is a great chance to meet new people who share your interest in the history and culture of North Carolina!
Historical Fiction. Intertwining myriad voices, Wiley Cash brings to life the heartbreak and bravery of the now forgotten struggle of the labor movement in early twentieth-century America—and pays tribute to the thousands of heroic women and men who risked their lives to win basic rights for all workers.
A limited number of free books will be available to participants. When registering please note if you would like to be considered for one of these books. Books can also be found at our local bookstore, Page158 Books, or at your local library.
