History Book Group: “The Cause: The American Revolution and its Discontents, 1773-1783”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting nine book discussions in June. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.

The History Book Group will hold a hybrid meeting Thurs. June 16 at 3:00 p.m. to discuss Joseph J. Ellis’The Cause: The American Revolution and its Discontents, 1773-1783.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level public meeting room at the library and digital attendees will join via Zoom. For more than two centuries, historians have debated the history of the American Revolution, disputing its roots, its provenance, and above all, its meaning. These questions have intrigued Pulitzer Prizewinning historian Joseph J. Ellis throughout his entire career. From the end of the Seven Years’ War to 1783, The Cause interweaves action-packed tales of North American military campaigns with parlor-room intrigues back in England, creating a narrative that brings together a cast of familiar and long-forgotten characters: British and American, loyalist and patriot, white and Black. 

For more information, contact Tricia Crary (Friday Book Group), Zach Row-Heyveld (Cookbook and Quick Bites Groups) or Kristin Torresdal (Happy Hour, History, and Speculative Fiction Book Groups) at 563-382-3717.
