Description:
 Join us for a discussion of All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren.
Winner of the 1947 Pulitzer Prize, it traces the rise and fall of demagogue Willie Talos, a fictional Southern politician who resembles the real-life Huey "Kingfish" Long of Louisiana. Talos begins his career as an idealistic man of the people, but soon becomes corrupted by success and caught in a lust for power.

Copies of All the King's Men will be available at the Maze Branch one month before the discussion. Library book discussions are open to all who are committed to reading and talking about books.
