Great Conversations is a PBS television series that showcases a diverse and fascinating array of authors and interviewers from a wide range of fields including politics, science, education, public journalism, and the arts. On the second Thursdays of each month the Cottonwood Public Library hosts a discussion group based on the show that is facilitated by Velda Bice. The group will watch an episode of the hour-long program followed by a discussion of the featured author and their book, as well as topics covered in the show. The group meets in the Dede Ewald Room from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. On Thursday, March 8 the program features former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins who is the author of nine volumes of poetry, including the forthcoming Horoscopes of the Dead. He is interviewed by Garrison Keillor, former host and writer of A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer's Almanac. Everyone is welcome to join the discussion on some fascinating books.
