Presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Jon Meacham is one of America’s most prominent public intellectuals. His latest book, Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope, is an intimate and revealing portrait of civil rights icon and longtime U.S. congressman John Lewis, which links his life to the painful quest for justice in America from the 1950s to the present. This book as well as Meacham’s other bestsellers, The Soul of America: The Battle of Our Better Angels and Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush will be discussed. A contributing editor at TIME, Meacham writes for the magazine’s Ideas section. He also pens “The Long View” column in The New York Times Book Review in which he “looks back at books that speak to our current historical and cultural moment.” Named a “Global Leader for Tomorrow” by the World Economic Forum, he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a fellow of the Society of American Historians, and chairs the National Advisory Board of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University. He is currently at work on a biography of James and Dolley Madison.
