Woodward Library Society hosts 10th Annual Society Social fundraising event

Student in library

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – On Saturday, April 21, Austin Peay State University’s Woodward Library Society will host its 10th Annual Society Social dinner event.

The Society Social, a fundraising and friend-raising dinner event, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at F&M Bank’s Franklin Room in downtown Clarksville. A social hour will be followed by a dinner catered by Nicolleta’s Catering.

The after-dinner program will feature actor-singers Carol Ponder and Robert Kiefer presenting “My Father’s War.” The story is based on the book Ponder Anew, the World Wat II memoirs of Lt. Herschel Ponder, Carol’s father. To augment the sense of time and place, Ponder and Kiefer have enriched the story with songs from the WWII era and traditional music from the Southern Appalachians of western North Carolina.

According to Carol Ponder, the story isn’t just about WWII; it’s about going to war and coming home again. The purpose of the presentation is to honor military veterans and to help communities explore and process the social and cultural effects of war with integrity, in an honest and responsible manner.

Tickets to the event are $50 for Woodward Library Society members and $65 for non-members. To purchase tickets, call 931-221-7618. Dress is business casual.
