Known for his poise, intellect, and influence until his death in October 2019, Elijah Cummings was one of the most respected figures in contemporary politics, a politician who held fast to his beliefs, but was not afraid to reach across the aisle in the name of friendship and progress. Part memoir, part call to action, We’re Better Than This is the story of our modern-day democracy and the threats that we all must face together, as well as a retrospective on the life and career of Elijah Cummings, one of our country’s most inspirational politicians.
The Virtual Book Club: We’re Better Than This will be held virtually on Monday, February 22 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. For more information, or to register, visit the Virtual Book Club event page. Join the CLP Virtual Book Club Facebook group for all kinds of bonus content about the Book Club selections, as well as announcements and recommendations. Copies of the book can be requested via Overdrive/Libby and through the Library’s Catalog.
