Hanging around this summer and looking for something to do? How about stopping by and discussing some super cool books with the AU Library?
Join us for Books that Shaped America, a special series of conversations for the local community and American University students, faculty and staff. The Series features selections from “Books That Shaped America,” a list compiled by the Library of Congress. Informal discussions about the extraordinary influence of these books on American society will be led by faculty and staff members from AU. This Series is intended to foster open, constructive conversations about important and enduring themes in civil society. (http://www.american.edu/spexs/btsa/)
