All Library locations will be closed on Monday, July 4, for Independence Day.
Author Bill Kauffman discusses his recent book, Ain’t My America: The Long, Noble History of Antiwar Conservatism and Middle American Anti-Imperialism on Thursday, October 23, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
The new book is the sixth penned by Kauffman and follows other works including Look Homeward America, chosen as one of the best books of 2006 by the American Library Association.
The book has been described as “an eye-opening exploration of the forgotten history of right-wing peace movements—and a clarion manifesto for antiwar conservatives of today.”
A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event. Admission is free. RSVP here or call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage at 10th and Baltimore.
