A Patriotic Pick: November 2021
- November 12, 2021
Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Edgar Dobie, executive producer and president of Arena Stage:
- Mayflower: Voyage, Community, War by Nathaniel Philbrick. “As an immigrant studying for my citizenship exam in 2008, I took my adopted nation’s history to heart,” says Dobie. “Philbrick’s book was an inspiration [of] what was and what might have been. Lincoln made Thanksgiving a holiday based on the early promise of those first contacts. We were hopeful then and can be again!”
