Book events today at Georgetown, Bob Lieber and Charles King
Just returned from lunch at the Mortara Center, and Robert Lieber’s launch of his new book Power and Willpower in the American Future (Cambridge). It was one of the most engaging book events, with much more verbal jousting than usual, and substantive questions. These book events bring out the best of our public intellectual side, and are usually packed. Tonight at 5:30 there will be a second event, with Charles King being honored by the Program for Jewish Civilization for winning the National Jewish Book Award. His book Odessa, was published last year by Norton.
