Dan Rather’s What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism is Available To All Residents of Nevada

In an innovative eBook partnership between public libraries and book publishers, Las Vegas Clark-County Library District and Macmillan are providing unlimited availability, with no wait or hold time, of the newly released Dan Rather eBook What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism The Graphic Novel to all residents of Nevada. This eBook graphic novel is instantly available via geolocation to anyone in the state of Nevada for eight weeks from July 5 through August 27, 2021.

What Unites Us: The Graphic Novel

Brought to life in stunning color by artist Tim Foley, What Unites Us: The Graphic Novel examines the building blocks of this country—from the freedoms that define us, to the values that have transformed us, to the institutions that sustain us. Mr. Rather’s vast experience and unique perspective as one of America's most renowned newscasters shed light on who we were and who we are today, allowing us to see a possible future, where we are one country, united. The graphic novel appeals to all age groups, making it perfect for summer reading and book clubs.

Mr. Rather also lends his legendary voice and perspective to an hour-long, wide-ranging interview with Library District Executive Director Kelvin Watson, which you can view here on this page or on our YouTube channel.
