This Month's Discussion Selection

Most Blessed

Most Blessed of the Patriarchs
by Annette Gordon-Reed

A provocative and absorbing character study that reveals our third president as a dynamic, complex and oftentimes contradictory human being. Gordon-Reed and Onuf fundamentally challenge much of what we thought we knew, and through their painstaking research and vivid prose create a portrait of Jefferson, as he might have painted himself, one  comprised of equal parts sun and shadow.
