Please join us for a virtual program with ABC News Presidential Historian Mark Updegrove for his latest book, Incomparable Grace: JFK in the Presidency (Publish Date: April 26, 2022). This program will be broadcast on our YouTube channel on the day the book releases at www.YouTube.com/ReaganFoundation and copies of his book can be pre-purchased through our website’s registration process. Register for the event and/or to pre-purchase a book.

Incomparable Grace compellingly reexamines the dramatic, consequential White House years of a flawed but gifted leader too often defined by the Camelot myth that came after his untimely death. In this gripping new assessment of his time in the Oval Office, Updegrove reveals how JFK’s first months were marred by setbacks: the botched Bay of Pigs invasions, a disastrous summit with the Soviet premier, and a mismanaged approach to the Civil Rights movement. But the young president soon proved that behind the glamour was a leader of uncommon fortitude and vision.
