Coming Up: Live @ the Library!

Homecoming Week is next week, and with that comes another great Live @ the Library event.

On Saturday, November 16th, Julie Hedgepeth Williams will join us to discuss her book A Rare Titanic Family.  Her talk will begin at 9am, but she'll arrive earlier with books to sell and sign.

Julie Hedgepeth Williams grew up hearing the story of the Titanic firsthand from her great-uncle, Albert Caldwell, who survived the tragic shipwreck, as did his wife and infant son.  Julie was so fascinated with the Caldwells' story that she wound up majoring in History (and English) at Principia College in Elsah, IL.  After a career as a journalist in Clinton, NC, she moved to Alabama, where she earned her Master's degree and PhD in Media History at the University of Alabama. 

Julie is the past president of the American Journalism Historians Association.  She teaches Journalism and Core Communication Arts at Samford.  In her "spare time," Julie travels all over the country speaking about the Titanic and the Wright brothers.

Don't miss this excellent opportunity!  Like us on Facebook, and join the Facebook event to get relevant updates!  You can find us at
