AU's Books That Shaped America in 2015

American University continues Books That Shaped America in 2015.   Upcoming books include Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett, and Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

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.   Attendance is free and reservations are not required.

Books That Shaped America is a project of American University and engages residents in talking about books that have helped shape American society.   The project is co-sponsored by the American University Library and the Humanities Lab at American University.
