'The Lion of Anacostia' Book Discussion

Frederick Douglass in Washington DC: The Lion of AnacostiaJoin us for a special book discussion of this year's DC Reads selection, Frederick Douglass in Washington, D.C.: the Lion of Anacostia by premier young historian and former Washington Times reporter, John Muller.

In what has been called "lively, pithy, humorous, and, by turns, grave and unrelenting" by author Mark H. Metcalf, this look at the incredible journey of Frederick Douglass from slave to famous orator is unlike any biography of Frederick Douglass you have picked up before.

DC Reads is a DC Public Library literacy program that promotes reading for pleasure by having citywide celebrations focusing on one book. Our goal is to appeal to a wide audience--high school students and adults of all ages--to generate in-depth questions and discussion. DC Reads uses various artistic means to discuss, display, entertain and celebrate the joy of reading. We hope you will join us.

Copies available for check-out.
