The seminar will examine and discuss eleven life stories from the moderator’s published book.
The name of my book is Lesser Known Giants of the 20th Century. It contains short biographies of I.J. Paderewski, A.P. Giannini, Moe Berg, Max Schmeling, Joe Louis, Branch Rickey, Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, Medgar Evers, Katharine Graham, Paul Winchell and Edward W. Said.
Resources: As mentioned above, the resource will be Lesser Known Giants of the 20th Century. I have free copies for those who wish to participate.
The moderator: I am retired from the field of personal finance having been trained as an attorney with tax specialization. The life stories compiled in the book are the product of a five year hobby.
Additional Information: The average length of the biographical essays is 45 pages and so each story is, I think, a “manageable morsel”.
