Let's Talk About It
About the Program
Let’s Talk About It (LTAI), a book discussion program for adults, is made possible by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a state-wide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Teacher renewal credit is available for teachers attending the sessions.
Each series consists of five two-hour programs held every other week for nine weeks. Different humanities scholars lead each of the five programs. Participants discuss the featured book. Series themes have included mystery, science fiction, women's autobiography, the Civil War, religion, North Carolina literature, and more. Attend one or all five sessions for an interesting and enjoyable experience with your fellow Davie residents.
Davie County Public Library has a long and proud history of LTAI programs. In 2016, the library conducted its own LTAI series:
Storied Voices - Sampling Southern Short Stories
What themes, characters, language, or literary devices resonate with readers and make these works so enduring? What elements in the stories identify or characterize the author? Does the Southern Gothic label work for these stories and authors? Do these works transcend "the South?" How does the short story format differ from the novel in terms of how readers respond?
The books in this new series include:
- Collected Stories of William Faulkner (2 sessions)
- The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty
- Collected Stories of Carson McCullers
- Flannery O'Connor A Good Man is Hard to Find
