Lecture with Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner A. Scott Berg on his latest book, Wilson.
A. Scott Berg is the author of four previous biographies, each one a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller. Each of his subjects has been an iconic American figure: legendary editor Maxwell Perkins, filmmaker Samuel Goldwyn, aviator Charles Lindbergh and actress Katharine Hepburn. And each portrait has been characterized by three essential qualities: the sweeping away of myth and legend to unveil a living, breathing human being behind the image; meticulous scholarship, aided by a remarkable ability to gain access to previously unavailable sources; and an elegant, fluent prose that propels the reader onward. Every one of these attributes is amply present in Berg’s new book, his first in more than ten years, a biography of the enormously important and influential but enigmatic and often mischaracterized twenty-eighth President of the United States, Wilson. (Publish Date: September 10, 2013).
In addition to the hundreds of thousands of documents in the Wilson Archives, Berg was the first biographer to gain access to two recently-discovered caches of papers belonging to those close to Wilson. From this material, Berg was able to add countless details--even several unknown events--that fill in missing pieces of Wilson’s character and cast new light on his entire life.

Just a few weeks after the Reagan Library’s extraordinary exhibit opens on Abraham Lincoln, the Reagan Foundation was pleased to offer a Reagan Forum and book signing with National Review editor and New York Times bestselling author Rich Lowry on his new book, Lincoln Unbound: How an Ambitious Young Railsplitter Saved the American Dream – and How We Can Do it Again (publish date: June 11, 2013).
Lincoln Unbound is a thoughtful mix of history and politics which traces Abraham Lincoln’s ambitious climb from provincial upstart to political powerhouse.
Revered across the political spectrum, President Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the amazing transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold. He helped give birth to the modern industrial economy.
Abraham Lincoln’s vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy that makes it possible for individuals to thrive and live the American dream.
