Rediscovering America

How the National Holidays Tell an Amazing Story About Who We Are

Ever wonder why everyone wants to immigrate to America? Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Scott Powell’s new book Rediscovering America: How the national holidays tell an amazing story about who we are answers that question. Please join us on Thursday, July 7 for a reception and lecture as Powell dives into a history that you have probably never read.

More than an account of people, dates, and events, this book is about the hidden hand of a purposeful historical development where the main actors are colorful characters, participating in an American drama of little known but remarkable events where overcoming incredible odds of failure is more unbelievable and engaging than fiction.

Rediscovering America is for people who seek truth and want to better understand the shared values that make the United States unique so a greater consensus can be found on how to think about our current challenges, their solutions and ways to replace division with more national unity.
