History Book Discussion: "The Wright Brothers"
Amateur historian and Westporter J. Bruce McGuirk leads a discussion of The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. This #1 New York Times bestseller from David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, tells the dramatic story-behind-the-story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly.
“A story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency. ... A story, well told, about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished. ...The Wright Brothers soars.”—Daniel Okrent, The New York Times Book Review
