A Patriotic Pick: September 2023
- September 8, 2023
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 Grateful American™ Book Prize judge John Danielson, founder of Chartwell Education Group and former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education:
- Becoming FDR: The Personal Crisis That Made a President by Jonathan Darman (Random House). Historian Michael Beschloss calls this recent work of presidential scholarship “a brilliant, fresh, and vivid book that shows us how a well-meaning and ambitious gentleman turned into the world figure who led Americans to conquer the Great Depression and fight to victory in global war.”
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. Learn more about the prize here.
