Please join us in welcoming award-winning journalist Evan Thomas for a special discussion and signing of his book Ike's Bluff. He will appear in conversation with local author Jon Meacham, as a part of our Salon@615 series.
“With grace, insight, and originality, Evan Thomas has written a brilliant and engaging book about the most important of subjects: how close we came to Armageddon in the seemingly placid 1950s. Thomas’s Eisenhower is a canny savior, a president who kept the peace through feint and bluff. No one writes more astutely or more honestly than Evan Thomas. This is the work of a master of storytelling at his best.”
-Jon Meacham, author ofThomas Jefferson: The Art of Power
