Jill Lepore, a Ten Evenings Author Presented by Pi...

Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures at Carnegie Music Hall (Oakland)

Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore offers a groundbreaking investigation into the origins of our divided nation. These Truths: A History of the United States follows her riveting Secret History of Wonder Woman.

In the most ambitious one-volume American history in decades, award-winning historian Jill Lepore offers a magisterial account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. The American experiment rests on three ideas―“these truths,” Jefferson called them―political equality, natural rights, and the sovereignty of the people. And it rests, too, “on a dedication to inquiry, fearless and unflinching,” writes Lepore in her exploration into the American past that places truth itself at the center of the nation’s history.

In The Secret History of Wonder Woman, Lepore argues that Wonder Woman is the missing link in the history of the struggle for women’s rights—a chain of events that begins with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and ends with the troubled place of feminism a century later.
