ASTORIA — Clatsop Community College presents “North and South in Dialogue: the Women of the Civil War” with Astoria author Marianne Monson at the next Ales & Ideas lecture on Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Fort George Lovell Showroom.

Monson, who teaches at the college, will offer a unique twist on Day of the Dead by sharing stories of remarkable American women who lived (and died) during the U.S. Civil War era. Join her for a conversation about her process, her research trip through the South and the relevance of the project in today’s political climate.

Doors open with food and beverage service at 6 p.m. Seasonal beers will be on tap, and food and other beverages will be available for purchase, but no purchase is required. Minors are welcome.

The showroom is at Duane and 14th streets.

Monson is the author of 11 books for children and adults with an emphasis on women’s history. Her new book is “Women of the Blue & Gray: True Stories of Mothers, Medics, Soldiers and Spies of the Civil War.”
