A Conversation with Jon Meacham

NY Times Bestselling author Jon Meacham will visit The Charleston Library Society to discuss his latest book, The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels with former Time, Inc. Editor in Chief, John Huey.

In this timely look at tumultuous periods when Presidents and ordinary citizens came together to defeat the forces of fear and hate, Meacham offers a fresh take on immigration in the United States and the critical times in our history when hope has overcome hatred. Our current climate of partisan division is not new, and by exploring past dark moments in American history Meacham shows us how our "better angels" have again and again won the day.

Meacham will be in conversation with former Time, Inc., Editor in Chief John Huey. Together they will explore the partisan divide in contemporary America and compare it with past periods of conflict and despair, offering hope in what may not be one of our contentious hours.
