The University of Southern Indiana Political Science, Public Administration & Philosophy Department invites the public to join a book discussion of Our American Story: The Search for a Shared National Narrative at 4 p.m. Tuesday, September 24 in Kleymeyer Hall, located within the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center on campus. This novel explores the deep fractures created in the United States by ideology, geography, class, religion, and race and searches for a common narrative. Can a unifying American story be achieved and, if so, what may that story may be?
The book’s editor, Joshua Claybourn, is an Evansville attorney, author, and editor of several books, including Abe’s Youth: Collected Works from the Indiana Lincoln Inquiry. An Evansville native, Claybourn has published widely on legal, political, and historical topics in a variety of popular press outlets, including USA Today and The Hill. The discussion will be led by Dr. Trent Engbers, associate professor of Political Science and director of the Master of Public Administration program, and Dr. Rocco Gennaro, professor of Philosophy.
A book signing and reception in the McCutchan Art Center/Pace Galleries will follow the event. This event is free and open to the public.
