I I I [ I MRS. J. J. WARREN IS ROOK CLUB HOSTESS The Centrevil/e Book Club held its first meeting of the new year on Thursday after- noon, January 10, at 3:30 in the home of Mrs. J. J. Warren. ,Mrs. W. K. Griffin, Jr., pres- ident of tlze club, presided over the business session. Mrs. E. B. Robinson .gave the program for the afternoon. Con- tinuing wibh the cl,ub's subject for the year, "Life and Litera- ture in the South," 5he reviewed "Brokcnburn, the Journal of Kate Stone, 181-1868," which records the Civic War experi- ences of a sensitive, well-edu- cated Southcxn girl. "Broken- burn," originally published in 1955, was republished in 1972 by the Louisiana State Universi.ty Press and is included in the Library of Southern Civilization .series. Mrs. Robinson pointed out that Kate Stone's impulse. ,to write down i,mportant events for posterity led herio record a great deal besides. Her aecounts of life in ,the Brokenburn neigh- borhoed, near Tallulah, Louisi- ana. and later in Texas add sig- nificant details to the social history of pro-war Southern society. Kate Stone's remarks on clothing, feeding, and pro- vidin,g medical care for he sl.aves and on plantation man- agement are important infor- mation far the student of plan- tation economy. Her record of books read and discussed width her friends is of gceat interest to the literary historian. Her comments on military opera- tions, especially those in the Vicksburg area, conCribute ,to the kn,owledge of important campaigns. Ferhaps the greatest contibution of Kate Stone's narrative lies in i.ts full picturo of homelife in the Confederacy's west. Accordin, to Mrs. Robinson, he journal of Kate Stone is an epitome of the romance, re- ality, and tragedy of America's m os, t dramatic conflict. It re- cords the ,rosy optimism in the beginning; the dogged determi- nation as war brought short- ages, defeat, and death; the hazardous flight of women and children before invading armies and their plight as refugees; the death struggle of the Con- federacy; the bitter acknowl- edgement of ,defeat and he ceturn to a devastated home- land; a.d. finally, ,the sruggle against poverty ,after the war. In her remarks, Mrs. Robi'nson said that above all ,the journal reveals the resen- ment of an admirable young woman of he ancien dictum that woman's part in war is to watch and wait, he discovery of love amid (the ruins of her country, and finally her accept- ance of the defeat without cynicism. At the end of the pr,og.ram, Mrs. Warren served a dessert course to members and guests.
