Many of us have extra time these days. What better way to spend it than with a book! In these trying times, it's also helpful to stay in community, even if we can't personally be with each other.
This year--the hundredth anniversary of women's suffrage--we're starting the LWVO Centennial Book Club under the leadership of Trisha Gorman, LWVO Centennial Committee. We'll be meeting over Zoom on the third Thursday of every other month. (Zoom, which is free for users, works with PCs/Macs and on iPhones/Androids.)
We will discuss the third and fourth case studies in the Harvard University book: DEMOCRACY: A CASE STUDY by David Moss. A reminder that this book is available in hardcover, paperback and a Kindle edition.
#3 - Democracy, Sovereignty, and the Struggle over Cherokee Removal (1836)
#4 - Banking and Politics in Antebellum New York (1838)
As Doris Kearns Goodwin opined: "This absolutely splendid book is a triumph on every level. A first-rate history of the United States, it is beautifully written, deeply researched, and filled with entertaining stories. For anyone who wants to see our democracy flourish, this is the book to read."
