Group to discuss McCollough book

MARQUETTE – The Peter White Library Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 3 in the Dandelion Cottage Room at the library to discuss “The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, 1830-1900” by David McCullough.

An enthralling, inspiring and, until now, untold-story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, architects and others of high aspiration who set off for Paris between 1830 and 1900, ambitious to excel in their work.

After risking the hazardous journey across the Atlantic, these Americans embarked on a greater journey in the City of Light. Most had never left home, never experienced a different culture. None had any guarantee of success. That they achieved so much for themselves and their country profoundly altered American history.

New members are welcome. For more information, call Caroline Jordan at 228-9953.
