Philadelphia, Summer of 1776.
When Thomas Jefferson was just 33, one of the youngest members of the Second Continental Congress, he was appointed to a committee tasked with drafting a document to declare that the American colonies were to be free and independent states--absolved from all allegiance to the British crown. To Begin the World Again invites you to step inside the story of the creation of a document that would shape not only America's history, but that of the world.

"Laura Kamoie draws upon her deep knowledge and appreciation of Thomas Jefferson's unique contributions and deep contradictions in this lively and informative depiction of his role in shaping the foundation of the United States of America. More than that though, she shows us in a moving coda how Jefferson's work on the Declaration of Independence has inspired generations of people seeking the blessings of liberty ever since."
"With beautiful writing and a deep understanding of her subject matter, Laura Kamoie brings life to the young, conflicted, idealist, Thomas Jefferson, in the momentous summer of 1776, when he is asked to write the document that would change his life and forge a new nation."
