In collaboration with ALA and 37 state humanities councils, NEH has supported development of a discussion program for libraries that probes the meanings of the American Civil War during its sesquicentennial. Following the popular “Let’s Talk About It” model, the program engages participants in discussion of related texts selected by Civil War historian Edward Ayers. Attend this session for how-to information on hosting the series, an overview of the discussion model, and details about funding opportunities for this and other programs about the Civil War.
