Join Jennifer Dawn Farley, manager of Duke Homestead State Historic Site, for a reading and discussion of her new book, Duke Homestead and The American Tobacco Company. The book highlights the effect of both tobacco and the Duke family on Durham. Duke University, Duke Hospital and Duke Energy as well as local churches, orphanages, textile mills, banks and railroads can all trace their roots to the Duke family. A book signing will follow the reading. This program is co-sponsored by Duke University Libraries.
