The Greater Journey by David McCullough

Discussion led by Lorna Barrett


THE GREATER JOURNEY: Americans in Paris by David McCullough (2010) From the 1830’s to the turn of the century, thousands of American artists and writers crossed the Atlantic to Paris—the cultural epicenter of the world. Samuel B. Morse, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and James Fenimore Cooper were only a few of the many who sought inspiration in the City of Light. McCullough deftly combines history and biography to show how this prolonged cultural exchange reshaped American life. 576 pp.



Everyone is welcomed to enjoy a lively discussion and refreshments! Copies of the books are available at the library. For more information contact the library 860-354-2455 or
