This month’s selection is The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough. This is the #1 bestseller that tells the remarkable story of the generations of American artists, writers, and doctors- many of them future household names like Oliver Wendell Holmes, Mark Twain, Samuel Morse, and Harriet Beecher Stowe- who traveled to Paris, the intellectual, scientific, and artistic capital of the western world and fell in love with the city and its people. When they came back to the United States, they helped shape American art, medicine, writing, science, and politics in profound ways.
