Zoom Event

Lynnanne will lead a conversation on a thought-provoking book that shines new light on American imperialism.

How to Hide an Empire: A History of the Greater United States by Daniel Immerwahr examines American history through the lens of overseas territories and colonies. Using archival and secondary sources, Immerwahr shows how the United States seized land and built an empire outside its contiguous states, leading to partitioned territories with different laws applying in each.

The book is available as an eBook via OverDrive and audiobook via Hoopla.
