An Evening with Jon Meacham
In THE SOUL OF AMERICA, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment of crisis in American politics by looking back at critical times in history when hope overcame hatred. Our current climate of partisan division is not new, and by exploring past dark moments in American history Meacham shows us how our "better angels" have again and again won the day. Painting revealing portraits of Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, and U.S. Grant, he brings the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the Southern "Lost Cause" back to vivid life, as well as Theodore Roosevelt and the Progressive movement; Woodrow Wilson and the backlash against immigrants in the First World War and the resurgence of the KKK in the 1920's; FDR and the "America First" movement of the 1930's; Truman, Eisenhower, and the reign of Joe McCarthy; and Lyndon Johnson's fight for civil rights.

JON MEACHAM is a Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian. A contributing writer for The New York Times Book Review and a contributing editor of Time magazine, he is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush, Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, American Gospel, and Franklin and Winston. Meacham lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

ANDREW LAMAR ALEXANDER JR. is an American politician serving as the senior United States Senator from Tennessee, a seat he has held since 2003. A twice elected governor of Tennessee, he is from Maryville.

Each ticket includes one hardback copy of THE SOUL OF AMERICA.
Seating is general admission.
