Coming Up: An Evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Jon Meacham
An evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham, as he speaks about his new book, The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels. New York Times bestselling author John Grisham will moderate the discussion. In Meacham’s The Soul of America, he presents moments in American politics and life while looking back at critical times in our history. Our current climate of partisan fury is not new, and Meacham shows us how what Abraham Lincoln called the “better angels of our nature” have repeatedly won the day.
The discussion was recorded on June 16 at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville.
