12 Years a Slave, book The purpose of the American History Book Club is to generate an informal discussion of major political and social issues that appear in American History. We will select a recently published book on a topic such as the Civil War or the Depression and use that work as a jumping off point for debate. Participants need not have read the whole book but simply think about the problems the book explores.

The American History book club will meet the second and fourth Mondays of the month at the Shepherd Park Library, three blocks from the Takoma Park metro. The first meeting may only cover the first part of the book. In the second meeting of the month, we'll try to complete the discussion of the core argument of the book.

There is no requirement to sign up ahead of time.  Just come to an informal gathering and be ready to enter into a lively discussion on topics of American History.
