Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge Dr. Louise Mirrer, president and CEO of the New-York Historical Society:
The American Story: Conversations with Master Historians by David M. Rubenstein. From Ron Chernow on Alexander Hamilton and Doris Kearns Goodwin on Lincoln to Taylor Branch on Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Caro on LBJ, these wide-ranging discussions with some of the premier chroniclers of our nation’s past make for what Booklist calls “an enjoyable collection of revelatory anecdotes, trivia, and bits of wisdom for modern legislators and citizens alike.”
Patriotic Picks is a monthly feature in partnership with the Washington Independent Review of Books.
