50 Great American Places: Essential Historic Sites Across the U.S. is a one-of-a-kind guide to the most important historic and cultural sites in the United States.
Author Brent D. Glass, Director Emeritus of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, joins us to discuss his book and sign your copy.
The guide provides historical context for places that represent fundamental American themes: the compelling story of democracy and self-government; the dramatic impact of military conflict; the powerful role of innovation and enterprise; the inspiring achievements of diverse cultural traditions; and the defining influence of the land and its resources.
50 Great American Places features both the Stowe Center and neighbors The Mark Twain House and Museum. The book is available in the Stowe Museum Store.
Co-presented with The Mark Twain House and Museum
