In November, the Evening Literary Club will read Colin Woodard’s American Nations:
A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America (2011, 371 pp).
Woodard’s book comes highly recommended by many Village readers. One noted that
it was “the best book she read this year." Woodard’s thesis argues that the US can
be divided into 11 “nations," like-minded communities whose dominant cultures explain
everything from current voting behaviors to their beliefs on social issues and the
role of government. Woodard, a journalist and author of several books, explores both
the historical development of these cultures and provides some fascinating recent
statistics which highlight their differences. Given our recent election, and the
stark divisions we’re currently feeling in our country, Woodard’s thesis should provoke
some especially interesting discussion.
