September 15, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Larson Hall, Derby Academy
The talk is drawn from Lepore's best-selling book These Truths: A History of the United States, of which the New York Times wrote, “This sweeping, sobering account of the American past is a story not of relentless progress but of conflict and contradiction, with crosscurrents of reason and faith, black and white, immigrant and native, industry and agriculture rippling through a narrative that is far from completion.”
Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at The New Yorker. She has been a finalist for the National Book Award; the National Magazine Award; and, twice, for the Pulitzer Prize.This event will be held at Derby Academy and seating is limited; please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1404.
