Re: What NON-FICTION book should we read and talk about in April, May & June 2020?
Looks like we're really struggling this time 'round, April is almost over. I'll suggest this one although I've had trouble participating much in the book discussions, it is not easy.The American Story: Conversations with Master Historians by David Rubenstein
This is a series of 16 essays on important figures by expert historians. For example, Taylor Branch wrote a 2,912 page trilogy on Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. Perhaps you'd like to know about his findings, but that is too much of a time investment. This book has a 24 page essay by Branch.
Robert Caro wrote four books totaling 3,552 pages about the career of Lyndon Baines Johnson. Again, perhaps you're interested in what that expert has to say and may find his 24 page essay in this book more easily digested.
Check out the table of contents - I'm sure you'll find the list of authors and their subjects to be intriguing.Update:
I have this book and cracked it open after
writing the above. These are not essays by the historians, they are interviews between them and David Rubenstein. I would have preferred essays, but the interviews appear to be well done.
