    HISTORIC NEWTON BOOK CLUB at the Jackson Homestead

    The next selection of Historic Newton's book club is American Colossus by H. W. Brands. In his story of the economic transformation of American society after the Civil War, Brands provides a portrait of the capitalists and the world they made. As a New York Times review observed: ”Brands, a terrific writer who commands his material, handles this sprawling, complicated story with authority and panache… as close as serious history gets to a page turner”.

    The book club is free and new members are always welcome.
