Encounters With the Founding Fathers at the Seminole Community Library
Starting on September 17th the Seminole Community Library will present a monthly reading and discussion program on the United States Constitution and the basic principles of the American Republic. Participants will read and discuss documents found in the online version of The Founders Constitution, a collection of documents read and written by the Founders, selected by Professors Philip Kurland and Ralph Lerner of the University of Chicago. The documents can be found at online at: http://press-pubs.uchicago.edu/founders/.
The discussions will be lead by Ben Fiedler, the Seminole Community Library's Reference Supervisor. Before becoming a librarian, Fiedler was working toward a PhD in political science at the University of Chicago, where he received a Master's degree in 1979.
The discussion group will meet at 7 p.m., every third Thursday in the Seminole Community Library's Program Room C, beginning on September 17th (Constitution Day). The Seminole Community Library is located on the Saint Petersburg College Seminole Campus at 9200 113th Street North. The program is free and open to the public.
