Grateful American Book Prize

Patriotic Pick for May 2021

“Give Me Liberty”

by Richard Brookhiser

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. Douglas Bradburn, president and CEO of George Washington’s Mount Vernon:

Give Me Liberty: A History of America’s Exceptional Idea by Richard Brookhiser. By exploring the singular wisdom and probity of 13 seminal works — including the Declaration of Independence, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and William Jennings Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” speech — award-winning historian and biographer Brookhiser makes a persuasive case that the United States truly is unique among nations.
