|Library to hold program on American West|
The Franklin Parish Library headquarters at 705 Prairie Street in Winnsboro will host a six-week series of readings and discussions about the history and symbolism of the American West.
The program is entitled "The American West in Fact in Fiction." The program is part of the Readings in Literature and Culture (RELIC) series administered by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
Hitherto funded by the State of Louisiana, state budget cuts to the LEH would have meant the cancellation of the program had it not been for the generous funding provided by the Franklin Parish Library to replace the shortfall in funding and prevent a disruption in what has become a highly popular annual cultural event in the parish.
It is sponsored by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
The program is free and open to the public and will be held on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p. m., beginning on April 5 and concluding on May 10 for a total of six sessions.
Those interested in attending are encouraged to register in advance at the library. For more information, call the library at 435-4336.
"The American West" will be conducted by Georgiann Potts of Monroe. Ms. Potts has presented many RELIC programs in Winnsboro and in other libraries in the region in the past, and she will honored with an Award for Individual Achievement in the Humanities at the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities' Annual Awards Event in April.
