Wednesday, July 20, 2022
For this month's Biography/Memoir Book Club we'll be discussing "You never forget your first" by Alexis Coe.
Join the conversation as we discuss You never forget your first: A biography of George Washington by Alexis Coe, an award winning historian and New York Times best selling author.
"If you think there is nothing new to learn about George Washington, then you have a treat in store with Alexis Coe's You Never Forget Your First. In this keen and savage analysis of our longstanding Washington canon, Coe dramatically reshapes our understanding of the president. With quick wit and an abundance of humor, Alexis Coe introduces readers to the nation's first president in a new and accessible style.
At once deeply researched and delightfully cheeky, You Never Forget Your First gives Washington a modern spin, revealing the complicated man behind the many myths, peeling away the macho veneer applied by previous (male) biographers. Alexis Coe proves how valuable a new set of eyes on the historical record can be. You Never Forget Your First will make readers laugh and reconsider American history."
We'll have copies of the book at the library for you to borrow or you can order it from our online catalog.
