Event Details

Join the Newnan Carnegie Library and the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation June 2nd at 11:30am for another exciting free lunchtime program. Bring a lunch with you as we welcome guest speaker, Chris Joyner, an investigative reporter with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, as he talks about his journey unearthing the trials of Carrollton sharecropper Clarence Henderson and its generational impact on a family and community. The doors open at 11:30am and the program begins promptly at 12:00pm and ends at 1:00pm.

“The Lunch and Learn programs have been so interesting, with the opportunity to learn and engage with amazing guest speakers. With our upcoming event of the story of a small-town murder and a series of sensational trials, where Joyner plans to talk about how our shared history echoes in the present and the opportunities it presents for healing and reconciliation, will make for a fascinating topic indeed,” says Jessica Dunnington, the Newnan Carnegie Library Program Associate.
