Lecture with FOX News Channel’s Dana Perino on her brand new book, And the Good News is…Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side (Publish Date: April 21, 2015) on June 8, 2015.
From her years as press secretary for President George W. Bush (the first Republican woman to hold the position) to her daily debates with colleagues as co-host of Fox News' hit show The Five, Dana Perino has always had a knack for knowing what to say and how best to say it. And the Good News Is is not only a political book, but also part memoir and part lessons and advice from her unusual road from a Wyoming ranch to the White House. Dana reveals the hard-earned wisdom that has successfully guided her through a life of challenges and achievement — including never before told stories from behind the scenes at the White House and Fox, her whirlwind courtship and marriage (she met her husband on a plane), her devotion to her beloved dog Jasper and her nontraditional path to her post-White House career.

A lecture and book signing with bestselling author Eric Blehm on his latest book, LEGEND:
A Harrowing Story from the Vietnam War of One Green
Beret’s Heroic Mission to Rescue a Special Forces Team
Caught Behind Enemy Lines (Release Date: April 28,
Eric Blehm’s book is the unforgettable account and courageous actions of the
U.S. Army’s 240th Assault Helicopter Company and Green Beret Staff Sergeant
Roy Benavidez, who risked everything to rescue a Special Forces team trapped
behind enemy lines. The Reagan Library is honored to house Roy Benavidez’s
Medal of Honor within its American Heroes Gallery.
In Legend, acclaimed bestselling author Eric Blehm takes
as his canvas the Vietnam War, as seen through a single
mission that occurred on May 2, 1968. A twelve-man
Special Forces team had been covertly inserted into a
small clearing in the jungles of neutral Cambodia—where
U.S. forces were forbidden to operate. Their objective,
just miles over the Vietnam border, was to collect
evidence that proved the North Vietnamese Army was
using the Cambodian sanctuary as a major conduit for
supplying troops and material to the south via the Ho
Chi Minh Trail. What the team didn’t know was that they
had infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed a major
enemy base. Soon they found themselves surrounded by
hundreds of NVA, under attack, low on ammunition, stacking the bodies of the
dead as cover in a desperate attempt to survive the onslaught.
Written with extensive access to family members, surviving members of the
240th Assault Helicopter Company, on-the-ground eye-witness accounts never
before published, as well as recently discovered archival and declassified
military records, Blehm has created a riveting narrative both of Roy Benavidez’s
life and career, and of the inspiring, almost unbelievable events that defined the
brotherhood of the air and ground warriors in an unpopular war halfway around the world.
Perspectives in Leadership Forum with war hero Marcus Luttrell on his best-selling book, Lone Survivor.
Marcus Luttrell joined the United States Navy in March 1999. He began Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training with Class 226 in Coronado, California. He graduated with Class 228 in 2001, making him a team Medic.
On June 28, 2005, Luttrell and SEAL Team 10 were assigned to a mission to kill or capture Ahmad Shah, a high-ranking Taliban leader responsible for killings in eastern Afghanistan and the Hindu-Kush mountains. Marcus Luttrell was
the only survivor. Badly wounded, he managed to walk and crawl seven miles to evade capture. He was given shelter by an Afghan tribe, who alerted the Americans of his presence, and American forces finally rescued him six days
after the gun battle. Following his physical recovery from Operation Redwing, Marcus went back and completed one more tour before being medically retired. He then wrote the book, Lone Survivor, which became a motion picture, to share
the amazing story of his brothers who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
