Join in the fun when the Book Group gathers for their monthly meeting to hear Pat Aura review The Real All Americans by Sally Jenkins.
In 1912 a Native American football team defeated the US Military Academy on the fields of West Point. Among the characters you will briefly meet are Jim Thorpe, Coach Pop Warner, and Dwight Eisenhower. Capt. Pratt is noted as being instrumental in the establishment of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School where Indian children were taught to “lose their Indian culture and enter the white man’s world “.
If you don’t read all of the book, Pat suggests to read or skim Chapters 1-4; also 8-11 and the Epilogue. So grab a sandwich or bring your salad and experience the fellowship of booklovers.
