These Truths: A History of the United States by Harvard historian Jill Lepore, is the focus of the 2019 West Roxbury Reads.
Dr. Lepore, who is also a New Yorker columnist, has been praised for the way her history includes the voices of the marginalized, which have been omitted from traditional histories. She will speak following a reception where copies of “These Truths” will be available for sale.
This event is free. Please check the Friends’ website, FriendsoftheWRLibrary.org,
