Fill your morning with engaging presentations by three authors discussing how they came to write their recently published books: 

A Little History of the United States, by James West Davidson. 

This latest book in “A Little History” series from Yale University Press guides us through 500 years in short chapters that bring to life hundreds of individuals whose riveting stories are part of America’s larger story. Davidson’s vivid narrative also sparks discussion about freedom, equality, and unity in our remarkably divided and diverse nation. 

We Were Brothers, by Barry Moser. This powerful memoir is centered on the fragile brotherhood bond between Moser and his older brother. Growing up in Tennessee amidst racism and prejudice, the brothers’ paths grow apart until they can no longer find common ground. We Were Brothers is the wrenching yet compassionate story, full of life’s contradictions, of finding a way to reconcile before it was too late. 

The Other Daughter, by Lauren Willig. In this historical novel set in England after WW1, Rachel Woodley, a governess, learns she is the illegitimate daughter of a respected earl. She moves to London to insinuate herself into the lives of the bright young society girls in order to set right the betrayal of her mother. Complications arise when she develops a new perspective on her half-sister.
