Stephen Kiernan / <i>Authentic Patriotism</i> Montpelier Vermont


As part of Montpelier's Independence Day Celebration Stephen Kiernan will be signing his new book Authentic Patriotism. We hope you will stop in the bookstore between having your face painted, decorating your bike or just lazing around town on this American Holiday.

Patriotism has become a loaded word: one that is wielded against people with whom we might disagree, or whose cultural origins don't match our own. But our founding fathers--Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and others--saw patriotism as a dynamic force: an act of service, in an evolving nation that defined its purpose by offering all people a better way of life.

In Authentic Patriotism, author and award-winning journalist Stephen P. Kiernan explores the original ideals that have been lost in our current climate, where war and economic turmoil have eroded our sense of civic obligation.
