Join us on Monday, November 9 - the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - for a book party celebrating Dr. Steven Hayward’s monumental second volume on our fortieth President, The Age of Reagan. Following Hayward’s influential first volume chronicling the rise of conservatism, the second volume provides a complete narrative history of the Reagan presidency and its aftermath, covering both domestic and foreign policy. The book pays special attention to Reagan’s battles within his own party as well as opposition from Democrats, and assesses how Reagan changed both parties. The Age of Reagan also surveys aspects of the "Reagan Revolution" that were less successful, and its lessons for politics today.

Steven Hayward is F.K. Weyerhaeuser Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute as well as a member of the Ashbrook Center’s Board of Advisors. He writes on a wide range of public policy issues. He is the coauthor of the annual Index of Leading Environmental Indicators; the producer and host of An Inconvenient Truth … or Convenient Fiction?, a rebuttal to Al Gore’s documentary; and the author of many books on environmental topics. He has written biographies of Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and of Winston Churchill. Mr. Hayward is also a senior fellow at the Pacific Research Institute.

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear from Dr. Hayward about this important work and to ask him your questions. The event will be held in our Seattle headquarters, located at 208 Columbia Street in downtown Seattle, on Monday, November 9, from 4:30-6:00 PM. Refreshments will precede the event.
