Last year, Library of America was able to send free copies of its title The Essential Hamilton to secondary school teachers of history and social studies in all fifty states.
This year, we are able to offer—again, thanks to the generosity of our members and donors, and again, free of charge—a limited number of copies of American Speeches: Political Oratory from Patrick Henry to Barack Obama to high school history teachers, social studies teachers, and speech and debate coaches across the country.
How to receive your copy of American Speeches:
• Send an email from your school (or school district) email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Indicate the name of the school where you teach.
• Tell us the grade level(s) and subject(s) you teach, and/or whether you are a speech and debate coach.
• Include your mailing address (home addresses are okay; U.S. addresses only).
Please note: Supplies are limited. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and we can only send one copy to each teacher.
We’re thrilled to be able to continue this program for another year—and to provide America’s greatest political oratory, our shared heritage as citizens, free of charge to teachers throughout the United States.
