Library to hold book discussion
Marion City Library will have a book discussion 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Santa Fe room.
“The American Spirit” is a short collection of speeches by David McCullough, one of America’s foremost historians.
McCullough’s thrust in all of them is to stress the importance of history as a guide to American character and values.
He fears many Americans, especially young Americans, are unaware of the kind of history that can enrich and guide their views of the present and future.
The book is one of two in the 2019 One Community-One Book program. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library.
The event is free and open to the public.
