Heather Cox Richardson Offers Notes on America

“Historians are fond of saying that the past doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes,” Boston College professor Heather Cox Richardson says about her widely read daily email series, “Letters from an American.” Few are those with the dedication of Richardson, an expert on American political and economic history whose impeccably informed digest reaches over a million readers daily. Her bestselling nonfiction Democracy Awakening is essential reading on politics in contemporary America, and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture is honored to welcome her to the conversation at the Thirtieth Oxford Conference for the Book. Richardson will be in discussion with Katie McKee at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 4.
