He is a professor of history at Rice University, the CNN Presidential Historian, and a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and Audubon. Seven of his books have been selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Enjoy a delicious plated lunch and dessert, followed by book sales and a signing with Mr. Brinkley. Full details about this program are available at
