Author tells story of Capitol domeNoted author and journalist Guy Gugliotta will visit Christ Episcopal Church at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, to talk about his new book, "Freedom's Cap: The United States Capitol and the Coming of the Civil War."
The story turns on the contrast between the rising of the dome, a symbol of unity, at the time that the country is on a fateful trajectory toward disunity.
Walter Isaacson, author of "Steve Jobs," called Mr. Gugliotta's book a "fascinating narrative."
Mr. Gugliotta's career includes time as a foreign correspondent in Latin America, a congressional reporter in Washington, D.C., and a freelance science writer.
The church is located at 815 Portola Road in Portola Valley. A reception will follow the talk.
