Join us for a reading and book discussion with Robert McWhirter, author of Bills, Quills, and Stills: An Annotated, Illustrated, and Illuminated History of the Bill of Rights (Constitution, $34.95).
In this comprehensive and entertaining guide to the Bill of Rights, award-winning author and attorney Robert McWhirter traces the origin of the first ten amendments over the span of nearly a thousand years. From the interpretations of the framers themselves to its modern relevance as an arbiter in the national debates of gun possession, freedom of speech, religious freedom, and government surveillance, McWhirter illuminates the life of the evolving document along with its historical peers in literature, religion, film, sports and popular culture. Filled with illustrations, photos, and factoids, this acutely informative exploration of the Bill of Rights is a worthwhile read for any citizen.
