“The Killer Angels” was written by Michael Shaara in 1974, using his own experiences with life’s most dangerous and intense facets. The book won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and became an instant classic. The book tells the story of Gettysburg from the perspective of soldiers on both sides of the conflict, and is available at the Waynesville branch through Teresa Glance.
Dr. Emory Maiden of ASU will lead the discussions. Maiden directs the writing programs at ASU, directs the Appalachian Writing Project and teaches courses from developmental writing to a graduate seminar in Nineteenth Century American literature.

Let’s Talk About It is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with the North Carolina Center for the Book, a program of the State Library of North Carolina.
