Books That Shaped America, book discussions sponsored by AU

Books That Shaped America is a project of American University and engages residents in talking about books that have helped shape American society.   Sessions start with discussions about the book of the month and then go well beyond the focal text.   Discussions are led by an AU faculty or staff member.   Participants are encouraged, but not required, to read the featured text.

Featured books include:

  • New Hampshire by Robert Frost
  • A Street In Bronzeville by Gwendolyn Brooks
  • Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
  • Family Limitation by Margaret Sanger
  • Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

Attendance is free and reservations are not required.

The Books That Shaped America series is co-sponsored by the American University Library and the Humanities Lab at American University.
