Author Jacquelyn Down Hall appearance and book signing Sept. 4

Eminent historian and best-selling author Jacquelyn Dowd Hall will be reading from her new book, “Sisters and Rebels: A Struggle for the Soul of America” at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the Quiet Zone in the Brenau Trustee Library.

Hall’s book tells the story of two of Brenau’s most famous — and infamous — alumnae, the Lumpkin sisters, Grace and Katharine.

A book signing and reception will follow. University Archives will also present an exhibition of campus life during the Lumpkin sisters’ years at Brenau. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Whitney Neveils at 770-534-6179 or ude.uanerb@ttecsuafw.
