Continued Conversations with William Hitchcock

Sep 29, 2020

Tuesday, September 29, 11:30 a.m. CDT – Online event

This fall we’re introducing a new members-only series titled “Continued Conversations.” Each conversation will center around the themes introduced in the “Evening With” programs. The speaker will offer a brief presentation and then take questions from the virtual audience. We’ll host our first speaker, William Hitchcock, on September 29 at 11:30 a.m. CDT.

William I. Hitchcock is the Corcoran Professor of History at the University of Virginia. His most recent book, The Age of Eisenhower: America and the World in the 1950s, was a New York Times bestseller. He is now writing a book FDR and the Dictators: Fascism, Democracy, and the Awakening of America.

Dr. Hitchcock will speak briefly about President Dwight Eisenhower and then answer member questions. Dr. Mark Lawrence, Director of the LBJ Presidential Library, will serve as host. We will be using a Zoom webinar. Zoom is free to the public but you will need to download it to your computer or device first. You can download Zoom here. If you already have Zoom, you will not need to download the platform again. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, please let us know. We would be happy to send you some tips and a link to an online tutorial that will help you get started.
