About this event:
David McCullough, one of America’s greatest historians and two-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Truman and John Adams, discusses his latest work, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, the fascinating story of the adventurous and talented American artists, writers, musicians, doctors, politicians, architects and others who travelled to Paris between 1830 and 1900. McCullough tells this sweeping story with power and intimacy, bringing us into the lives of the remarkable men and women whose achievements abroad profoundly altered American history.
Please Note: Pre-signed books will be available for sale. Mr. McCullough will briefly sign books after the event. Patrons must have a copy of the new book, The Greater Journey, in order to get any of his older books signed.
