Retired Dalton State Professor Dr. Larry Cooper will speak on his new book, “Lincoln’s Land” at a Lunch and Learn program on Thursday, Aug. 22. The popular lunchtime program, sponsored by the Dalton State Foundation, will take place in the James E. Brown Center beginning at noon.

“One of the main ideas of the book,” Dr. Cooper said, “is that Tennessee was part of the Confederate States of America, but east Tennessee was anti-secessionist or ‘Lincoln’s Land.’”

Recently retired from Dalton State as an associate professor of Education, Dr. Cooper grew up in Campbell County, TN, and received degrees from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Georgia State University, and Vanderbilt University.

Reservations and advance payment are required by Aug. 20, and may be made online at www.alumni.daltonstate.edu/events. Cost is $10 and includes lunch. Those with questions are invited to contact the Dalton State Foundation by calling 706 272-4473.

Dalton State Lunch & Learn programs are open to the public for those 12 years old and older.
