Virginia Humanities is pleased to partner with New Dominion Bookshop to invite you to 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.
Meacham is also the author of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power and American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House.
John Grisham is a New York Times bestselling author, attorney, politician, and activist best known for his legal thrillers. His books have been translated into 42 languages and published worldwide.
