History Book Discussion Group/These Truths: A History of the United States

book coverMonday, September 23, 7 – 8 pm, Main Library

“Ranging from European settlement to Trumpian tweets, These Truths is a perceptive and necessary contribution to understanding the American condition of late.” (Chicago Tribune).

This may be the most talked-about new take on American history in decades. Lepore’s new book is clear-eyed, compellingly written, and absolutely up to date. “Ranging from European settlement to Trumpian tweets, These Truths is a perceptive and necessary contribution to understanding the American condition of late.” (Chicago Tribune). Lepore argues that the past does not repeat, rather it persists as a force in the present. Her read on our history is not flattering, but flattery is perhaps not what our country needs at this historical moment.
