Wolverton to discuss Tom Brokaw's The Greatest Generation
As part of the collaboration of Starkville Reads with the Oktibbeha County Heritage Museum in commemorating the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II, Dr. Robert Wolverton will lead a discussion of Tom Brokaw’s award-winning book The Greatest Generation at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 17 at the Starkville Public Library.
Well-known in the Starkville community for his knowledgeable and entertaining programs, the popular speaker will provide an opportunity for discussion to those who have read this fascinating book, which is a series of interviews with a variety of figures about their experiences at home or on the battlefield during the war.
“Those who come to his discussion of The Greatest Generation will not only learn a great deal about the book, but will also be entertained with his wit and delightful rapport with the audience,” said long-time colleague and friend Nancy Hargrove, who also is currently serving as the president of Starkville Reads.
