Library Director Sandra Clariday has published a book review in the latest issue of Tennessee Libraries.  In her words, “The plot comes from events in rural Wilkes County, North Carolina, surrounding the murder of a young woman, Laura Foster, and subsequent hanging of Tom Dula, former Confederate soldier recently returned from the war. This is not a “whodunit” but a sordid story of betrayal and deceit set in an atmosphere of poverty, starvation, and racism.” You’ll find the book in our library at PS3563.C3527 B357 2011 Read the review below:
