HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Arts Council is bringing back its popular Coffee Talk Conversation Series after a three-year hiatus. 

The first program for 2023, titled “The True History of the American Founding,” will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 12, at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main. The program is free and open to the public. Program partners are Wade Stables P.C. and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. 

There are a number of versions of the history of the American founding which present a cynical, misleading and even false representation of the origin of the United States. Using examples of current historical scholarship, Sam Swisher seeks to provide a more balanced understanding of the American founding and the importance of that awareness for our current cultural climate.

Swisher served first as an assistant professor of history and later as a professor of history and chair of the history department at Hannibal-LaGrange University from 1996 to 2020.

The Coffee Talk Conversation Series is designed to be relaxed, informal and informative. The Hannibal Arts Council will present community members speaking on various topics, including travel, history, health, food, well-being and art.
