Presented by the Library Foundation
Thursday, October 9, 2014
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
As part of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, the library will host An Evening with Storytellers, featuring Eric Jacobson and Bryan Lane. The presentation will highlight important aspects of the battle as well as the people involved, and the focus will be on why this one battle was so important to the outcome of the war and to the future of our town of Franklin.
Eric Jacobson is the Chief Executive Officer and Historian with the Battle of Franklin Trust, and has published several books about the impact of the Civil War in this area. The library has helped Bryan Lane publish his recent book on General Adams, one of the five generals killed during the battle.
Doors open at 6:00 for wine and appetizers, and the program begins at 6:30 on Thursday, October 9, at the main branch of the Williamson County Library at 1314 Columbia Avenue. Tickets are $25 each. Tickets are available for purchase online via EventBrite and will also be available at the door on the ninth.
The evening is sponsored by the Library Foundation, which exists to give support for the library above and beyond what county money can provide. The Foundation began in 1948 and has had varying levels of activity during that time. For the past several years their focus has been supporting children’s programs, funding the summer reading program and other events and activities. The program will also offer an overview of the many classes, events, and activities that YOUR library has to offer to the community.
