Get Ready for Cold Mountain!
Don't Miss The Santa Fe Opera Cold Mountain Book Club
Curated by Charles Frazier
2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. Cold Mountain is Charles Frazier’s powerful account of one soldier, W. P. Inman, who deserts the Confederate army as the war is coming to an end and makes his way back to his home on Cold Mountain. The novel won the 1997 National Book Award and was made into a film in 2003. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Now, The Santa Fe Opera has put Cold Mountain on the opera stage, co-commissioned and co-produced with the Opera Company of Philadelphia as part of its American Repertoire Program. The opera will make its debut on August 1st.
In a very special arrangement with the Santa Fe Opera, Collected Works will host The Santa Fe Opera Cold Mountain Book Club, a 5-month series curated by Cold Mountain's author, Charles Frazier.
The final meeting of the Cold Mountain Book Club will take place on Wednesday, July 29, at 6:00pm. The July book is Cold Mountain. The discussion will be moderated by the author, Charles Frazier.
