Foggy Pine Books will host author and Lees-McRae professor Scott Huffard, who will be speaking about his new book, Engines of Redemption. In his book, Huffard examines the rapid growth, systemization, and consolidation of the southern railroad network, demonstrating how economic and political elites used the symbolic power of the railroad to proclaim a New South had risen. The railroad was more than just an economic engine of growth; it was a powerful symbol of capitalism’s advance. Join us for a reading, Q&A session, and book signing!
