Lalita Tademy, author of the two historical novels, Cane River and Red River, takes fascinating moments in history and turns them into powerful, heart-wrenching fiction. Her third novel, Citizens Creek, chronicles two different lives in its two parallel sections: those of Cow Tom, a slave born in Alabama and sold to a Creek Indian chief prior to his tenth birthday, and that of Cow Tom's granddaughter, Rose.
Join us for this discussion of Betty Zane by local author Zane Grey and participate in On the Same Page Muskingum, the community-wide reading initiative. Zane Grey completed his first novel, Betty Zane, in the winter of 1902-03. The story recounts the siege of Fort Henry by American Indian allies of the British. The heroine of the story, Grey's own ancestor Betty Zane, made a heroic dash to retrieve desperately needed gunpowder. Registration is requested and space limited for this free program.
