Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality By Danielle Allen

I invited our authors to add two of their recommendations for your consideration. Alex Myers and Danielle Allen proposed some really interesting selections that I am looking forward to reading and giving.

From Alex Meyer

1) Historical fiction, published recently: I am Abraham by Jerome Charyn.
It’s a 13th century story of a girl who is raised as a boy!

From Danielle Allen

1)  Robert Caro, Master of the Senate from 2002

2) Megan Marshall, Margaret Fuller: A New American Life, from 2013.  BTW, Margaret Fuller: A New American Life won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography.

And Finally, a recommendation from me.  The best book on the history of the modern independent movement is Independents Rising, written by Jackie Salit.  It is a page turner and a great gift for people who want to know the principles and history of the progressive wing of the independent reform movement.  It is a gem!

One thought on “P4P Reading Recommendations

  1. Dear Ms. Stewart: Delighted to see your interest in Jerome Charyn’s latest work of historical fiction, I Am Abraham: A Novel of Lincoln and the Civil War. It’s a top holiday pick from both the Lincoln Presidential Museum and Lincoln’s Cottage. I admin the Facebook page for the novel’s fans, and, if you write me, I’d be delighted to send you as many copies as you need. The paperback is due out on President’s Day 2016, with a readers guide written by the author inside. JC is always happy to Skype book clubs or visit in the NYC area.
