Want to spend some time reading entertaining books and talking to like-minded individuals?

If so, join us for the H&B (history and biography) book club, where we will be reading some of the more popular titles that deal with the world’s stimulating past events and people. 
 
This month we will read and discuss Harlow Giles Unger's book Mr. President: George Washington and the Making of the Nation's Highest Office. Join us as we discuss how the first man of America defined the role of the presidency.

When Washington took office, what was the role of the president? What were the real limits to his power? Unger, drawing on letters and other contemporary documents, explores how the 1st President created the position that we are still debating today. 
 
We hope you will join us on the second floor in room 209 for an entertaining and enlightening discussion on this and other interesting works.
