NKU Professors, CCPL to Host Fall Lecture & Book Discussion Series


The Campbell County Public Library has announced the line-up for the 2014 "Let's Talk About It" Lecture and Discussion series this fall.


Every other Tuesday this fall, NKU professors will lecture and lead a group discussion on that week's title. Space for each discussion is limited to the first 40 library patrons to register.

Here's the schedule:

September 9
Sycamore Row by John Grisham

English professor Jonathan Cullick, and local attorney & NKU graduate student Robert Raper, will lead a discussion about southern history and law in Grisham's newest legal thriller.

Registration is currently open. Register here.



September 23
King Lear by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare's King Lear is deeply invested in the question of omnipotent power and the hold that power has over a patriarch's sense of well being, sanity, and corporeal wholeness.

Registration is currently open. Register here.



October 7
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer

The Interestings begins in the summer of 1974 when six friends meet at an artsy summer camp. These characters remain in on another's lives for the next 40 years. We follow them as they age and see the ways in which their chance meeting in adolescence shapes their entire lives.

Registration opens August 7.


 October 21
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Lowland focuses on two brothers who choose different paths in life. Set in India and America, the book explores how family ties are forged, tested, and challenged as individuals follow their own dreams. The novel showcases Lahiri's powers of evoking landscape and history to examine familial bonds and broader social issues.

Registration opens August 21.
