The Hampton Book circles will meet on Tuesday, October 15 from 2:00-3:00 pm in Room 229 of the Wythe Hall Library. This semester’s discussions will be on the historical novels of Jeff Shaara. Shaara’s best selling works present novelizations of military history, spanning out nation’s wars from the American Revolution to World War II. Shaara researches extensively to write his novels and uses well-known historical figures as characters in an attempt to bring history to life for the reader. The discussion group will focus on Rise to Rebellion, Gone for Soldiers, and Gods and Generals, but any discussion of any of his works is welcome. Jeff Shaara is also the Virginia Peninsula Literary Consortium‘s Fall speaker.
The Hampton book circles also feature the opportunity for online discussion, to participate, just post your comments here.
