Adults are invited to the Presidential Book Club’s fourth meeting about U.S. presidents from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, at the Idyllwild Library. The group meets every other month.

Become inspired this election year. Each meeting uncovers the history of our presidents through their biographies. James Madison, our fourth president, will be the topic this month.

The free club provides a selection of biographies — some long, some short — for you to read. You may even watch a movie or documentary instead.
