Writer and journalist, Craig Fehrman, will discuss his book Author in Chief: The Untold Story of Our Presidents and the Books They Wrote, which explores the historical and biographical writings of the American presidents.

About our presenter:

Fehrman spent more than a decade writing and researching his first book, which The Wall Street Journal called “one of the best books on the American presidency to appear in recent years.” He was born and raised in southern Indiana and currently lives in Bloomington, Indiana, with his wife and children. Fehrman is an adjunct lecturer at the Media School at Indiana University, Bloomington. In addition to Author in Chief, which was also a finalist for the Marfield Prize, Fehrman has edited an anthology, The Best Presidential Writing, and is currently finishing his next book, a revisionary look at the explorations of Lewis and Clark.
