John Adams’ good fortune to be discussed Tuesday

To complement the "John Adams Unbound' exhibit at Loutit District Library, the associate director of the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies at Grand Valley State University will present "John Adams: Fortunate Son of Liberty' at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, in Program Room A of the library, 407 Columbus Ave.

Brian Flanagan’s program elaborates the fact that Adams wasn’t born with silver spoon in hand; and, at the end of his life, he was buried in a modest, granite tomb. In between, however, the “Atlas of Independence” was a man of tremendous good fortune.

Flanagan has worked at the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies since 2003. He serves as program director of the Peter Cook Leadership Academy; and adjunct professor of public, nonprofit and health administration.

The “John Adams Unbound” traveling exhibit is on display at Loutit District Library through Aug. 5.
