The Plot Against America Book Discussion
led by Isaak Kruger

In this book, Roth imagines an alternate history where Franklin D. Roosevelt loses the 1940
presidential election to heroic aviator and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh. Shortly thereafter,
Lindbergh negotiates a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler. The United States government
embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. Lindbergh’s election is the first in a series of actions
that threaten to destroy America as we know it. Copies of this books are available in the
Meyers Library.
