DMA Arts & Letters Live: Jill Lepore
In the most ambitious one-volume book on American history in decades, award-winning historian, and New Yorker writer, Jill Lepore offers an account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. Written in captivating prose, These Truths: A History of the United States weaves American history into a tapestry of faith and hope, of peril and prosperity, of technological progress and moral anguish. Filled with sketches of Americans from John Winthrop and Frederick Douglass to Pauli Murray and Phyllis Schlafly, These Truths offers authoritative new insights about a great, and greatly troubled, nation.
Lepore is the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University. Her many books include The Secret History of Wonder Woman, a national bestseller, and Book of Ages, a finalist for the National Book Award.
