War & Society Roundtable
The War & Society Roundtable is a joint community and university monthly reading group. Sponsored jointly by Southern Miss’s Center for the Study of War and Society and the Library, this year the Roundtable focuses on books dealing with deception in history.  A friendly but spirited discussion about the book is moderated by a History faculty member from Southern Miss.  The Roundtable is a great way for community members, faculty, and students to interact while exploring topics of mutual interest.  Copies of each month’s books -- provided by the Library and through a generous grant from The Mississippi Humanities Council -- are available for loan at the Hattiesburg Public Library well in advance of each meeting.  The Roundtable is free to the public and is generally held at 6 pm on the second Tuesday of each month during the academic year.
