Dayton Metro Library Main, The Eichelberger Forum, 1st Floor, Rm 103
This fall, join area scholars and community readers at the Dayton Metro Library for wide ranging conversations about books written by authors honored by the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. Engaging teachers from area universities will be joined by eminent Daytonians to talk about these works’ impact and artistry, essential themes, and connections to the authors’ other work, and the power of the written word to promote peace. If you’ve already read these authors, or are just thinking about doing so, these conversations will enrich your appreciation and understanding of these authors and their works. Andrew Strombeck, Ph.D. Associate Professor of English, Wright State University, leads discussion about The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, the 2016 Fiction Winner. Community leader/readers include Dayton City Commissioner Matt Joseph. Mr. Nguyen will participate online.
