His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, A Life with Jonathan Alter
  • Date: Thursday, December 10, 2020
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: Online

In His Very Best, award-winning historian Jonathan Alter tells the epic story of an enigmatic man of faith and his improbable journey from barefoot boy to global icon. Alter paints an intimate and surprising portrait of the only president since Thomas Jefferson who can fairly be called a Renaissance Man, a complex figure—ridiculed and later revered—with a piercing intelligence, prickly intensity, and biting wit beneath the patented smile. Joining Jonathan Alter in conversation will be presidential historian Michael Beschloss.
