Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush
Nashville’s own Jon Meacham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian with a rare gift for making biographies read almost like novels. The Bush family granted him extraordinary access to their family when he was researching this book, resulting in a deeply personal portrait of our nation’s 41st president. In addition to the White House years, Destiny and Power explores Bush’s life before his presidency: his family, war experience, business background, and the years he spent as director of the CIA and as vice president under President Ronald Reagan. Hear Meacham speak with Tim McGraw on December 7 at the Nashville Public Library, presented by the Salon@615 partnership.
