Event Details

H.W. Brands comes back to West Michigan to discuss his next biography on America's path-breaking and Controversial 40th president, Ronald Reagan. Drawing from his past research on Franklin Roosevelt and his current work on Ronald Reagan, Brands examines what makes a president great - that is, what allows a president to reshape the course of American life. Roosevelt and Reagan espoused decidedly different policies, but their leadership styles reveal some striking similarities. The lessons of their presidencies hold value for all their sucessors - and for the citizens who choose those successors.
