The Killer Angels

January 7th, 2013 · No Comments · Book Group, Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch

This Pulitzer Prize-winning historical novel of the Civil War centers on the battle of Gettysburg and the men who fought and died there.  Here is a review from Goodreads.com: In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war. The Killer Angels is unique, sweeping, unforgettable—a dramatic re-creation of the battleground for America’s destiny. It should also be noted that his novel served as the inspiration for the 1993 film, Gettysburg.  Plan to join us on the evening of January 10th in the Hunt Room from 7-8:30 PM for a lively and thoughtful discussion of this novel.
