Description

Real Men Read is an open forum book discussion covering nonfiction books and fiction books that appeal to men...and even some women.  All are invited!  Discussions are generally on the fourth Thursday of each month unless otherwise noted.  To have a book set aside for you, contact JC Morgan at 859-781-6166.

The year 1908, as author Jim Rasenberg notes, was the year for optimism.  America had found its feet as a country and was now stretching its legs as a world power.  From Teddy Roosevelt's robust presidential presence to the industrial might of the American economy to the exploration of the far reaches of the world, Americans were becoming comfortable in the world's spotlight.  Rasenberg explores this year of hope that was quickly met with the challenges of WWI.
