American Story

Connor Gifford will read from and talk about his book, America According to Connor Gifford, tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Vineyard Haven Public Library.

This Nantucketer’s book about the history of the United States covers 400 years of our nation trying to get it right. It also tells the author’s own story, a gift of hope and inspiration by an amazing young man who has Down Syndrome.

Connor has appeared on the Today Show with Katie Couric, and his book was endorsed by the late Meet the Press host Tim Russert, who called it, “A distinctive American perspective from a unique young man.”
