Lecture and Book Signing with Steve Case

Friday, April 29, 2016
Lecture 6:00 p.m.
Book Signing 7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a lecture and book signing with AOL co-founder Steve Case for his new book, The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future. This event is free to attend, however books must be purchased in the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature. Books may be pre-purchased during the reservation process. 

One of America’s most accomplished entrepreneurs — a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life and orchestrated the largest merger in the history of business — shares a road map for how anyone can succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology. Steve Case’s career began when he cofounded America Online (AOL) in 1985, which became the top performing company of the 1990s. After Case engineered AOL’s merger with Time Warner and he became Chairman of the combined business, Case oversaw the biggest media and communications empire in the world.

In The Third Wave, which pays homage to the work of the futurist Alvin Toffler (from whom Case has borrowed the title, and whose work inspired him as a young man), Case takes us behind the scenes of some of the most consequential and riveting business decisions of our time while offering illuminating insights from decades of working as an entrepreneur, an investor, a philanthropist, and an advocate for sensible bipartisan policies.

We are entering, as Case explains, a new paradigm called the “Third Wave” of the Internet. The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leverage the smartphone revolution. Now, Case argues, we’re entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major “real world” sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food—and in the process change the way we live our daily lives. But success in the Third Wave will require a different skill set, and Case outlines the path forward. The

Third Wave is part memoir, part manifesto, and part playbook for the future.

Although registration for this event is closed, this is a free event and everyone is still welcome to attend both the lecture and book signing (books must be purchased at the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature).  Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 29th!

In his roles as the longest-serving Chief of Staff to Nancy Reagan and Deputy Assistant to President Reagan, James Rosebush had unrivaled one-on-one access to the President, observing his personality, his decision-making, his guarded nature. James Rosebush's revelations are moving and meant to inspire us to look to our 40th President for guidance now as we face the global challenges of a complicated 21st century.

“This book fills an important space in the Reagan literature. It gives readers an exciting understanding of the pace and texture of life in that dynamic President's White House.”―George F. Will, Syndicated Columnist

“This up-close, personal account by a real White House insider gives us the best insight yet into who Ronald Reagan really was and what made him tick.”―Bob Schieffer, CBS News

“Rosebush understands Reagan-what motivated him and what made him great. We need a whole lot more of Reagan's powerful moral courage and Jim Rosebush has shared what the President revealed to him on this subject during the years he worked in the White House. A must-read for anyone who loves Reagan and wants to understand him better. A blueprint for our current and future leaders. They could learn a lot from this book.”―Larry Kudlow, CNBC Senior Contributor, Radio Host of the nationally syndicated Larry Kudlow Show

Lecture and Book Signing with Chase Untermeyer
Thursday, June 9, 2016
Lecture 6:00 p.m.
Book Signing 7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a lecture and book signing with President Reagan’s Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower & Reserve Affairs, Chase Untermeyer. Mr. Untermeyer will be at the Reagan Library to discuss and sign copies of his new book, Inside Reagan’s Navy: The Pentagon Journals. This event is free to attend, however books must be purchased in the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature. Books may be pre-purchased during the reservation process. Reserve seats and/or books, for more information please call 805-522-2977.

While serving as an assistant to Vice President George H. W. Bush, Chase Untermeyer concluded that the only way to learn how the U.S. government really works was to leave the silken cocoon of the White House and seek a position in one of the departments or agencies.

In March 1983, when offered an appointment as a deputy assistant secretary of the Navy, he jumped at the opportunity. After only a year as a “DASN,” he was named by President Ronald Reagan as assistant secretary for Manpower & Reserve Affairs, in charge of all personnel issues affecting nearly one million sailors and Marines and a third of a million civilian workers.

Inside Reagan’s Navy offers an engaging, up-close narrative of Untermeyer’s experiences in the Pentagon, interwoven with descriptions of events and people, humorous anecdotes, and telling quotations, painting a portrait of official Washington during the Reagan years, with its politics, parties, and personalities.

RESERVE SEATS.

Book Signing with Michael Reagan
Saturday, June 11, 2016

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Please join us in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library’s Museum Store for a book signing with Michael Reagan on his latest book, Lessons My Father Taught Me: The Strength, Integrity, and Faith of Ronald Reagan (Publish Date: May 10, 2016). Books must be purchased through the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature.  Books can be pre-purchased here.

In this perfect gift for Father’s Day, Michael Reagan looks back over his years with his father and reflects on what he has learned from the greatest man he has ever known—and one of the greatest men the world has known.

When Michael was growing up, his father would drive him out to his ranch. There Ronald Reagan taught Michael how to ride a horse, how to shoot a gun, and much more. As they drove together or did chores together, Michael’s father told him stories and taught him about life, love, family, faith, success, and leadership. Michael didn’t fully appreciate those lessons at the time, but years later he remembered—and he understood.

Now, Michael Reagan shares his father’s wisdom and experience in this inspiring book.
