Programs will be held at the Library between Tuesday, September 3, and Sunday, October 6. The highlight will be on Thursday, October 3, with two opportunities to hear Jordan speak, followed by book signing.

More than a dozen programs related to Mudbound’s setting, themes, and characters will include music, genealogy, book and clothing displays, an art show featuring works by Avon Lake High School students, and an exhibit of historical photos, many of which are on loan from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, LA, and the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, OH. We also invite the public to participate in our large “Honor Wall” collage by bringing in a picture or copy of a picture, of any loved one who served in World War II. This “interactive” exhibit is a way of paying tribute to those veterans, local and beyond, who honorably served their country and are a part of “The Greatest Generation”.
