      EVENT DETAILS
      P&P Live @ Lunch!: Susan Eisenhower – How Ike Led: The Principles Behind Eisenhower's Biggest Decisions

      This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live @ Lunch! Series. 

      Few people have made decisions as momentous as Eisenhower, nor has one person had to make such a varied range of them. From D-Day to Little Rock, from the Korean War to Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies, Ike was able to give our country eight years of peace and prosperity by relying on a core set of principles. These were informed by his heritage and upbringing, as well as his strong character and his personal discipline, but he also avoided making himself the center of things. He was a man of judgment, and steadying force. He sought national unity, by pursuing a course he called the "Middle Way" that tried to make winners on both sides of any issue.

      Susan Eisenhower's How Ike Led shows us not just what a great American did, but why—and what we can learn from him today.

       

      Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business. 

      The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a book from our website.

      We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
