Paul Dickson, author of more than 60 non-fiction books, will be discussing his latest book, "The Rise of the G.I. Army 1940-1941," the dramatic, untold story of how the American Army was mobilized from scattered outposts two years before Pearl Harbor into the disciplined and mobile fighting force that helped win World War II. Senator William S. Cohen, former United States Secretary of Defense, says, "Just when we think there‘s nothing left to learn about World War II, Paul Dickson tells us more, much more. This is one of the most important books I‘ve read that showcases the forces of isolationism and racism during one of the most consequential periods in American history. It belongs on the shelves of everyone who understands how fragile democracy is and why every American is worthy of fighting for it." Free and open to the public.

Stressed out by the craziness of our world? Come rediscover rationality with those who invented it! At the origins, women and men counted basically for trading stuff. Events and “the order of things” was derived from godly or royal/tyrannical edicts. Starting in about 570 BC, the Greeks questioned “the principles and reasons for all things divine and human”. This led to the birth of rational argumentation – the concept of proof and demonstrable truth – in human enquiries. A few intellectual giants - Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid, Archimedes, Apollonius – developed logic and the use of reason as the bases for our civilization’s advances. Their construction of mathematics, and thus of logic and philosophy, still underpins our societies.

FREE AND OPEN TO ALL

The Chevy Chase Historical Society is hosting historian, journalist and author Rebecca Boggs Roberts for their first-ever Zoom webinar. Roberts will explore how the 1913 suffrage parade helped turn the tide in women’s long fight for the right to vote. Although it would take seven more years until the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution secured women’s right to vote, Roberts says the violence against women marchers that day raised awareness of the suffrage issue and led to the passage of the milestone amendment 100 years ago this year.

Roberts is the daughter of distinguished journalists Steve and Cokie Roberts and author of Suffragists in Washington, D.C.: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote. She currently serves as Curator of Programming at Planet Word, the recently-opened museum celebrating words, language and reading in Washington, D.C.’s historic Franklin School.

The November 15 webinar is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
