Event description

Description

Powell's Books is honored to welcome Dan Rather for the release of his new book, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism. Please join us for an intimate talk by the world-renowned journalist as he discusses his latest work. In addition to enjoying the presentation, ticket buyers will receive a copy of the book What Unites Us.

About What Unites Us
At a moment of crisis over our national identity, Dan Rather has been reflecting on — and, on social media, writing passionately about — the world we live in, what our core ideals have been and should be, and what it means to be an American. Now, in a collection of original essays, the venerated television journalist celebrates our shared values and reminds us about what matters most in our great country. What Unites Us will be an instant classic and a must-read for everyone engaged in our urgent national conversation.

About Dan Rather
With a storied career that has spanned more than six decades, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s best-known journalists. He has interviewed every president since Eisenhower, and, over that time, personally covered almost every important event in the United States and around the world. Rather joined CBS News in 1962. He quickly rose through the ranks, and in 1981 assumed the position of Anchor and Managing Editor of the CBS Evening News — a post he held for 24 years. His reporting across the network helped turn 60 Minutes into an institution, launched 48 Hours as an innovative news magazine program, and shaped countless specials and documentaries. Upon leaving CBS, Rather returned to the in-depth reporting he has always loved, creating the Emmy Award-winning Dan Rather Reports on HDNet. Now, building upon that foundation, he is president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company he founded that specializes in high-quality nonfiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels.
