November 2008 discussion
Our next book discussion will be on November 24th at 6:30pm in the First Amendment Room. Books are available now. Our selection is The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution by David Stewart.
Here's what one reviewer from Publisher's Weekly says-
"Briskly written, full of deft characterizations and drama, grounded firmly in the records of the Constitutional Convention and its members' letters, this is a splendid rendering of the document's creation. All the debates are here, as are all the convention's personalities... Stewart, a constitutional lawyer in Washington, D.C., ignores the recent decades' penetrating scholarship about the Constitution's creation in favor of a fast-paced narrative of a long, hot summer's work."
