Fellow outriders, this summer we are going to do another book club. Longtime commenter Michigan Reader is going to take it on. She's very interested in pursuing the work of Eric Foner. As it stands (and she can correct me) I believe we have two choices--Foner's Reconstruction or The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln And American Slavery.
I think our host reserves the right to make the final call. But she wanted to see the audience polled and get some idea of the interest out there. For the record, it's only right that Michigan Reader do this. She actually started the first book club we had in our open threads. For the horde, indeed.
We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
