In celebration of Independence Day, we’re going thematic for July, with “Founding Brothers” by Joseph Ellis, acclaimed author of books on Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. It’s about the intertwined lives of the founders of our country and how that affected the decisions they made at critical junctions during the formation of the country. Want to know why the capital is in Washington, DC? Why they didn’t fully address the institution of slavery? It’s all in here!
We meet in the upstairs lounge of the Midtown Scholar at 2:00 PM, reservations encouraged, but not required (we like to know who’s coming so we know when to get started). Please contact Joe Foner at email@example.com to RSVP or for questions. Hope to see you there, and happy reading!
