Join us to hear from Susan Eisenhower about her new book profiling her history-making grandfather, President Dwight D. Eisenhower. From D-Day to Little Rock, from the Korean War to Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies, few people have made decisions as momentous and varied as Eisenhower.How Ike Led sheds light on his principles and decision making, demonstrates how he led America through a transformational time, and shows what we can learn from today. Don’t miss learning more about Eisenhower and this illuminating work, heralded by Henry A. Kissinger, “A well-written reflection on one of the most significant American presidents. The compelling substance of How Ike Led is enhanced by the author’s sensitive style. It brings one of America’s most remarkable public figures into lasting focus.”

Susan Eisenhower, one of Ike's four grandchildren, is a consultant, author, and a Washington, DC-based policy strategist with many decades of work on national security issues. She lectures widely on such topics, including strategic leadership. She serves as a regular commentator on television and has provided analysis for CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Fox News, PBS, the BBC and all three network morning programs.

This virtual author event is free and open the public.
