May Book Club

The May Book Club will feature the book, John Adams by David McCullough with facilitator Sue Venable Calderwood. This Pulitzer Prize–winning, bestselling biography of America’s founding father and second president, is brilliantly told by master historian David McCullough.

In this powerful, epic biography, McCullough unfolds the adventurous life journey of John Adams. This brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution. He rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; and his marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the moving love stories in American history. This is history on a grand scale—a book about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, John Adams is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.
