Quote of the Day (David McCullough, on History As ‘Something Someone Would Want To Read’)

“There should be no hesitation ever about giving anyone a book to enjoy, at any age. There should be no hesitation about teaching future teachers with books they will enjoy. No harm's done to history by making it something someone would want to read."—Pulitzer Prize-winning American historian David McCullough, The Course of Human Events” (National Endowment for the Humanities, Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities, 2003)

This is an especially important consideration as we enter the Fourth of July weekend…
