Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein [France & Britain]
Facilitator: Tracy Williams, Reference Librarian
“What is truth? The significance of Julia Beaufort-Stuart's alias, "Code Name Verity," takes on double meaning in this taut, riveting, thriller. When the story begins, Julia is an unnamed prisoner, formerly a wireless operator for the British, held captive in France by a seemingly sadistic Nazi interrogator. She has supposedly "sold her soul" in exchange for small bits of freedom, giving pieces of code in exchange for her life.” – School Library Journal review excerpt

Civil Rights to be Discussed at LSC-Kingwood
Designed to be interactive and thought provoking, this conference is for community members interested in the examination of the Civil Rights movement and how to teach it. Participants will also receive resources needed for instruction.
“The Civil Rights Movement and the killing of Jim Crow were, as historian Todd Purdum has said, a time of ‘shared civic purpose, national unity, and hope that the nation might yet live up to its founding creed.’ Join us at LSC-Kingwood for our third annual History Day as we explore the grass-roots movement that changed America,” said Dr. John Barr, history professor.
The conference format includes morning presentations by distinguished authors and afternoon break-out sessions discussing primary sources. Presentations will be given by Patricia Bernstein, “The First Waco Horror: The Lynching of Jesse Washington and the Rise of the NAACP”; Marvin Sparks, “The Music and Musicians of the Civil Rights Era (from gospel to jazz)"; Dr. Gavin Wright, “The Economic Significance of the Civil Rights Revolution”; and Dale Carpenter, “Lawrence vs. Texas and Modern Civil Rights.” The event will be held in the Student-Conference Center.
