Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham

Meets the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm.

Current Selection:

October 2: Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham
"Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power" gives readers Jefferson the politician and president, a great and complex human being forever engaged in the wars of his era. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver. Jefferson's genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously, catapulting him into becoming the most successful political leader of the early republic, and perhaps in all of American history.
