Deliver Your News to the World

Columnist Bruce Kauffmann writes about history in an entertaining way

His book ‘Bruce’s History Lessons: The Second Five Years (2006 - 2011)’ is the second five-year collection of his educational and entertaining nationally syndicated newspaper column on American and world history.

Alexandria, Virginia – WEBWIRE

Mr. Kauffmann launched his nationally syndicated newspaper column with the intent of making history both educational and entertaining, and short (450 words) to accommodate his busy readers.  He believes the focus of history should not be on arcane dates, facts, and statistics. but on the people — the good, the bad, the famous, the unknown — who make history.

A recurring theme in the feedback Mr. Kauffmann receives from his readers is that they wish they had been taught history in school the way he writes about it.

One reader, Cynthia Scarlett, commented: “Mr. Kauffmann, I truly enjoy your columns! How I wish someone with your flair could have been around when I was in high school. I would have been a lot smarter than I am now. I think you are a real asset to learning and I hope someone in the academic arena understands that and helps spread your fascinating columns throughout the country, or world.”

Moreover, countless teachers write that they use his column in their classroom. As one teacher, Jeanne J. DiGiacomo, wrote, “I find that your articles hold the attention of the students because they are written at a level they understand, are concise and interesting to read.” 

The book “Bruce’s History Lessons: The Second Five Years (2006 - 20011)” will be proudly displayed at the 2017 American Association of School Librarians which will take place this November 9, 2017.  Grab a copy now!
