What if everyone in Pass Christian read the same book and then joined together to talk about it? This is the idea behind One Book, One Pass.
Citizens behind One Book One Pass are pleased to announce that our 2019 selection is The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and presidential scholar Jon Meacham.
Over the next 6 months, the community will be encouraged to read the book and engage in book discussions, panel discussions, documentary screenings and other programs that will culminate in the Author Presentation by Jon Meacham on Tuesday, October 8th at 7pm at the Randolph Center in Pass Christian (315 Clark Avenue).
In The Soul of America, Meacham helps us understand our present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear.
Jon Meacham is the author of the New York Times bestsellers. He is a distinguished visiting professor at Vanderbilt University and a contributing writer for The New York Times Book Review.
The author event with Jon Meacham is free and open to the public. Please contact the Pass Christian Library at (228)452-4596 if you would like to know more details.
