Library Friends, Fulghum Lecture Series hosting events this week
The Fulghum Lecture Series and the Daniel Library Friends will host lectures this week at The Citadel.
On Tuesday, Nov. 10, the Daniel Library Friends will host Gene Poteat, a contributing writer at The Charleston Mercury. Poteat, a veteran student in the Class of 1957, will delve into the world of female spites. “Lady Spies” will include stories of daring do and espionage in long silk stockings.
The lecture is free and open to the public. It begins at 6:30 p.m. in Bond Hall Room 165.
On Thursday, Nov. 12, Alexander Macaulay, Citadel Class of 1994, will discuss his new book "Marching in Step: Masculinity, Citizenship and The Citadel in Post-World War II America,” as part of the Fulghum Lecture Series.
Macaulay’s book, due out in November, explores the issue of Southern distinctiveness and sheds light on the South's real and imagined relationship with the rest of America. In “Marching in Step” Macaulay argues that The Citadel has actually experienced many post World War II changes - changes that often tell us as much about the United States as about the American South.
His lecture and book signing begins at 7 p.m. in Duckett Hall Auditorium.
