Leane Itale introduced Susan Cheever’s Drinking In America: Our Secret History. I will be reading it this summer and hope you will join me. I love the tidbits about the role of alcohol in historical events. Her researched factual account of events surrounding major US historical moments lends an interesting viewpoint to the role alcohol plays in our society and culture. She uncovers the opposing forces of alcohol overindulgence and prohibition (tea totaling). This is a discussion worth exploring.
