Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

  • Sep 2, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

September's book club selection is, "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong", by James W. Loewen.


"Americans have lost touch with their history, and in Lies My Teacher Told Me  Professor James Loewen shows why. After surveying eighteen leading high school American history texts, he has concluded that not one does a decent job of making history interesting or memorable. Marred by an embarrassing combination of blind patriotism, mindless optimism, sheer misinformation, and outright lies, these books omit almost all the ambiguity, passion, conflict, and drama from our past."

Members can RSVP starting today 8-6-14.

    Thanks to the organizers for having this group. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck getting information about the location for tonight. Changing my RSVP to "no." Maybe someone else can squeeze in.

    Thank you for the recent addition. As a new member do I buy this book ahead of time or the night of the meeting?

    If I'm 10th on the waitlist now, what would you say my chances are of making it into the event? If you guys don't think I'll make it I'll probably just keep reading the books I'm reading now
