Dean’s Book Review: His Truth is Marching On

January 21 @ 8:00 am 9:00 am MST

Please join Dean Elizabeth Kronk Warner for her monthly dean’s book review. The book to be reviewed will be, His Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope by Jon Meacham, it is an intimate and revealing portrait of the civil rights icon and longtime U.S. congressman, linking his life to the painful quest for justice in America from the 1950s to his passing on July 17, 2020.

Meacham calls Lewis, a believer in the injunction that one should love one’s neighbor as oneself, Lewis was arguably a saint in our time, risking limb and life to bear witness for the powerless in the face of the powerful and he had an unshakable belief in the power of hope.

In many ways he brought a still-evolving nation closer to realizing its ideals, and his story offers inspiration and illumination for Americans today who are working for social and political change.

Please RSVP. Once registered you will receive the link to participate.

This book may be purchased or you can contact the Marriott Library to request an eBook.  Here is the link to the library:  Marriott Library Borrowing Dept.  You do not need to purchase or read the book to participate in this book review.
