WHEELING - The Ohio County Public Library has announced upcoming programs.

They include:

noon June, "Lunch With Books: From Animal House to Our House." Ron Tanner will discuss his book, "From Animal House to Our House: A Love Story," which describes his adventures with his girlfriend as they attempt to restore a Baltimore Victorian that was wrecked by a fraternity. Tanner maintains a blog about the adventures at www.houselove.org.

Lunch With Books programs are free and open to the public. Patrons are invited to bring a bag lunch and free beverages are served.

7 p.m. June 25, "People's University American History II: The Civil War and Statehood." Rea Redd, Waynesburg University Eberly Library director and American history instructor, will instruct. "Reconstruction" will feature a review of the process that began in 1862 of states re-entering the Union. Consideration will be given to Lincoln's, Johnson's and Congress' evolving reconstruction plans; the movement of African-Americans from freedom to citizenship; the return of soldiers to civilian life; and how Americans viewed the war during and after Reconstruction. People's University programs are free and open to the public.

noon July 2, "Lunch With Books: Marie Manilla." Manilla will discuss her debut novel, "Shrapnel," about generational, geographical and political differences and what it takes to bridge them. The book explores the legacy of war in three generations of men from the Butler family.

Huntington native Manilla is a graduate of the Iowa Writer's Workshop whose fiction has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Echo Ink Review and Prairie Schooner. She first appeared at Lunch With Books in 2011 to read from her short story collection, "Still Life With Plums."

The library's First Monday Book Discussion Group will discuss "Shrapnel" at 7 p.m. July 1. Manilla will be present for the discussion, providing a rare, in-person opportunity to interact with the author of a discussion book.
