Author Talk with David McCullough: The American Spirit
Thursday December 7, 2017
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For is a timely collection of speeches by David McCullough that reminds us of fundamental American principles. McCullough has spoken before Congress, the White House, colleges and universities, historical societies, and other esteemed institutions over the course of his career. Now, at a time of self-reflection in America following a bitter election campaign that has divided the country, McCullough reminds us of core American values to which we all subscribe.
David McCullough has twice received the Pulitzer Prize, for Truman and John Adams, and twice received the National Book Award, for The Path Between the Seas and Mornings on Horseback. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award.
