Lakeview Book Discussion of "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama

Lakeview Book Discussion of "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama

*Offsite
Thursday, Nov 4, 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Join us for a book discussion of "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama. New members always welcome!  Please check with library staff for Zoom link.

Synopsis: "In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama’s conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day." -- Amazon.com
