‘Coolidge’ book launch is SundayFebruary 16,2013PLYMOUTH — Amity Shales will be signing copies of her new book “Coolidge” at 2 p.m. Sunday at the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth.
Coolidge is a re-examination of America’s 30th president. Shales traces Coolidge’s rise from a tiny town in New England to his time at Amherst College to Massachusetts politics and the presidency.
According to Shales, Coolidge restored national trust in Washington and achieved what few other presidents have: He left office with a federal budget smaller than the one he inherited. The Coolidge Center will have a small reception following the talk.
The President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site is located at 3780 Route 100A in Plymouth. For more information, call Kate Bradley 672-3389 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
