Starting Seeds Indoo
Main Library
Monday, Feb. 8,1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Why start seeds? Maybe it’s to get a jump on the season or perhaps you want varieties that are only available by seeds. In a hands-on presentation, learn how to properly start seeds indoors for your garden and/or landscape. WCPL’s Seed Exchange is starting back up in March, and you’ll be able to “check out” vegetable, flower, and herb seeds – for FREE. It’s too early to plant them outside, but you can start most of them indoors during the winter.

Literary Ladies Book
Main Library
Monday, Feb. 22,6:00 pm
The Literary Ladies Book Group meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Board Room of the Main Library in Franklin. New members are always welcome.

Our February book is Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. We've extended the discussion to February since it is such a long book.  King Henry VIII doesn't yet have an heir and wants out of his marriage.  The Pope won't grant him an annulment.  Thomas Cromwell believes he can be of assistance to the king.  Wolf Hall sheds new light on Thomas Cromwell, and his relationship with Henry VIII.  This is the first in a trilogy; the second book is Bring Up the Bodies.

The British Broadcasting Company has adapted this book into a miniseries. 

Our March book is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Molly needs the community service position she applied for to keep her out of serious trouble.  She is teamed up with 91 year old Vivian Daly, to help her clean out her attic.  Together they discover Vivian's past, which is similar to Molly's.  Can Molly straighten out her life while helping Vivian?

The African Diaspora
Main Library
Friday, Feb. 26,1:00 p.m.
Jane Landers, professor of history at Vanderbilt University, will lecture on her more than twenty years of research on the African Diaspora in various parts of the Americas. Her graduate research on the first free black town in in the Americas (formed by runaways from South Carolina who fled to Spanish Florida) supported archaeological investigations, a National Landmark registry and a museum. Since then she has also worked on diasporic sites in Mexico, Cuba, Colombia and Brazil. Landers now directs an international effort to digitally preserve the oldest records for Africans in the Americas.

This presentation will present an overview of the rise of the African slave trade and the subsequent diaspora of Africans through the Americas.  Main themes will include differences among European slave systems in the Spanish, Portuguese, English, and French colonies of the Americas and the resulting varieties of cultural expression and resistance of the enslaved.  You will also be introduced to the wide variety of evidence now available for studying the African diaspora in the Americas.
