Book Discussions
May 21, 6:oopm

Each month, we read and discuss a relatively new title on some aspect of American history. Discussions are led by Steve Barrett, archivist, BSU adjunct faculty member, and coordinator of ISHS’ Abraham Lincoln: His Legacy in Idaho permanent exhibit. The selected book for the May discussion is Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness, written by Joshua Wolf Shenk.
