When Life Strikes the White House: Keynote Lecture by Richard Reeves

    Improve listing Presented by

Americans demand much from their presidents. They practically require them to be superhuman no matter the circumstance. Yet they are also human, and sometimes life strikes even the White House. At crucial points in the annals of the presidency, personal crises have affected a president's ability to lead, and even altered the nation's course.

Join us for two lectures and a full-day symposium exploring the way that crises have affected presidents, from Andrew Jackson to Bill Clinton. 

Join us to hear a keynote lecture from Richard Reeves, syndicated columnist and lecturer at The Annenberg School for Communications, University of Southern California.
