SVM Book Club: Jacksonland by Steve Inskeep

The Swannanoa Valley Museum & History Center will continue hosting its free book club in 2018 on the second Friday of each month at 11:30 at the museum.

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of the month’s chosen reading selection to participate in a casual discussion of themes, questions, and

musings. Coffee and tea will be provided.

The books in the series span a range of titles and include fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and prose and focus on themes related to western North Carolina and the whole of the Appalachian region.

October's read is Jacksonland: President Andrew Jackson, Chief John Ross and the Great American Land Grab by Steve Inskeep, host of NPR's Morning Edition. From the publisher, "Jacksonland is the thrilling narrative history of two men—President Andrew Jackson and Cherokee chief John Ross—who led their respective nations at a crossroads of American history. Five decades after the Revolutionary War, the United States approached a constitutional crisis. At its center stood two former military comrades locked in a struggle that tested the boundaries of our fledgling democracy. Jacksonland is their story."
