A Patriotic Pick: November 2022

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 Louise Mirrer, Ph.D., president and CEO of the New-York Historical Society:
- American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783-1850 by Alan Taylor. “This persuasively argued history tells a new and provocative story of a United States that came into being as a nation divided, much as it is today,” says Mirrer. “Key characters — from Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, and Henry Clay — emerge as adjuncts to the story of a fragile union, each leaving an indelible imprint on the reader, as they did on the country. The New-York Historical was pleased to award American Republics its 2022 Barbara and David Zalaznick American History Book Prize.”
Each year, the Grateful American™ Foundation, through its Book Prize, honors excellence in children’s historical nonfiction and fiction focused on the people and events that have shaped the U.S. since its birth. To learn more about the prize, click here.
