Book Talk and Signing with Author Jon Meacham
Destiny and Power – The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush
Wednesday, November 2nd
This event was sponsored in conjunction with Barrett Bookstore.
Many fans of Jon Meacham came to the DCA to hear him speak.
Presidential historian, Contributing Editor at TIME, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham is Executive Vice President and Executive Editor at Random House, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a regular guest on “Morning Joe.” Destiny and Power is his latest book and a # 1 New York Times bestseller.
Drawing on President Bush’s personal diaries; on the diaries of his wife, Barbara; and on extraordinary access to the 41st President and to his family, Jon Meacham has written a surprising portrait of an intensely private man who led the nation through tumultuous times. From the Oval Office to Camp David, from his study in the private quarters of the White House to Air Force One, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the first Gulf War to the end of communism, Destiny and Power charts the thoughts, decisions, and emotions of a man who was, like the nation he led, at once noble and flawed.
