The Friends of the Library offer the third book in the Let’s Talk About It series, “Shiloh and Other Stories,” by Bobbie Mason.

Dr. Russell Binkley from Western Carolina University will lead the discussion from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday,  Aug. 8 in the auditorium of the Waynesville Branch of the Haywood County Public Library. Refreshments will be served.

The book is available for check-out at the library. Mason’s book was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the American Book Award and the PEN/ Faulkner Award.    The book won the 1983 Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award in 1983.   Mason captures the speech pattern and lifestyle of western Kentucky as her characters confront social change in their rural environment.
