History Book Club Meets at Edmond Library

 

147 years later historians still argue her guilt.  Was Mary Surratt an active participant in the murder of Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865, or just a character on the fringe of the plot who did not know what was going on?

Edmond Library’s History Book Club will meet on Thursday, May 17, to discuss theory and fact.  University of Central Oklahoma Professor of History Dr. Stan Adamiak will facilitate a discussion of the book “The Assassin’s Accomplice” by Kate Clifford Larson.  The session begins at 6:30p.m.

“History Book Club has become one of our customers’ favorite programs,” said librarian MaryAnn Johnson.  “It’s nice to know that people are still interested in reading history and finding out how America and the world got to where we are today.”
