The Clinton Country Reads program is reaching a crescendo as its month-long programming enters its final week when Wilmington College’s Dr. Stephen Potthoff and Lee Bowman speak on “The Ghosts of Wilmington College” this evening at 6 p.m. at WC’s Watson Library.
The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Potthoff is a professor of religion and philosophy while Bowman serves as an assistant professor of religion and philosophy and cataloguer/reference librarian at the college’s library. Their program follows the reading and discussion of the novel, “The Sentence,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Erdrich on April 13 at two libraries in Clinton County.
Since The Sentence involves a haunted bookshop, it’s especially appropriate that local ghost stories be told, especially ones involving the now 152-year-old Wilmington College.
