Books That Shaped America: "New Hampshire" by Robert Frost
Bender Library, American University, Tuesday, September 9 at 7pm
Michael Manson, Director of the University Honors Program at American University leads a discussion of New Hampshire by Robert Frost.

The Books That Shaped America events are conversations for the American University and metro-D.C. communities about books that have helped shape American society. Each discussion starts with a focal text, but the conversations stretch far beyond the pages of the books themselves. Each discussion is led by a faculty or staff member from AU.

Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the featured text. The event website provides references and links for additional materials attendees may find interesting. Admission and parking are free for this series, and no RSVP is required to attend. (LenneaRB)

Lunch with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor — at The Willard
Politics and Prose, Sunday, September 14 at 12pm
Willard InterContinental and Politics & Prose Literary Series

The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. With a candor and intimacy never before undertaken by a sitting Justice, My Beloved World (Knopf) recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench. Her extraordinary determination, intelligence and buoyant humor are evident on every page.

The Willard InterContinental celebrates its literary roots partnering with famed Washington DC independent bookstore, Politics & Prose on a series of teas and luncheons with notable authors and thinkers. The Series is a nod to the Willard’s literary history as the home away from home for such legendary writers as Walt Whitman, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson and Julia Ward Howe. The Series is curated by Politics & Prose, DC’s premiere independent bookstore celebrating thirty years in 2014.

1 Signed Paperback and 1 Ticket for lunch in The Willard Room: $90 Additional Signed Paperback: $17
