Nonfiction Book Club

July 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

This month, we will discuss Harry Truman’s Excellent adventure: the true story of a great American road trip by Matthew Algeo.

A synopsis of this book from Chicago Review Press:

From Missouri to New York and back again, this recounting of an amazing journey chronicles the road trip of a former president and his wife and their amusing, failed attempts to keep a low profile. Diners, bellhops, and cabbies shouted out “Hiya, Harry!” whenever they recognized the former president, and, out for his daily constitutional on the streets of New York, Harry even stumbled into the sidewalk shot of the newly launched Today show. Along the way there are brief detours into relevant topics, such as the postwar American auto industry, McCarthyism, the development of the nation’s highway system, and the decline of Main Street America.

Copies of this book are available at the library. 

Our discussion will be held in a hybrid format.  The host will be in person at the BFL, while some members will join over zoom.  You are welcome to join either way.  For zoom, please register here to receive the meeting details:
