Book Club Meeting: Colin Woodard’s “American Nations”

cover-_american_nations-577x860Our next book, highly recommended by Jerry Morris, is Colin Woodard’s American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures in North America. Writing in the Washington Post, Reid Wilson describes the book thus:

“Red states and blue states? Flyover country and the coasts? How simplistic. Colin Woodard, a reporter at the Portland Press Herald and author of several books, says North America can be broken neatly into 11 separate nation-states, where dominant cultures explain our voting behaviors and attitudes toward everything from social issues to the role of government.”

Meeting: Thursday June 21st, 10:30 AM to 12 Noon.

Location: UNC Health Care Hillsborough Campus on 460 Waterstone Drive, Hillsborough, NC 27278. We will meet in a conference room not too far from the café area. Directions to conference room: Come into main lobby, make a right at the gift shop, go down the Administration Hallway on the right. The conference room is first door on right after passing second set of brown double doors in hallway.

All are welcome, even if you have not read the book!
