Nataly Kelly’s Found In Translation is a fascinating look at how the translation of everything from a peace treaty to a French pastry recipe can have a dramatic impact on the results.
Larry Berman will present a compelling portrait of Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, considered the founder of the modern Navy. It is a portrait of leadership that is essential for our time.
Ira Shapiro will be joined by Carter congressional aide Frank Moore as they discuss The Last Great Senate. The Christian Science Monitor calls it “ a first-hand, blow-by-blow account of the personalities and issues that animated the Senate during the Carter administration.”
You won’t want to miss best-selling novelist Patricia Cornwell as she discusses and signs her new book The Bone Bed. The New York Times Book Review says “when it comes to the forensic sciences, nobody can touch Cornwell.”
We wrap up the month with David Holmes’ look at the Faiths of the Postwar Presidents. This revealing account examines not only the beliefs professed by each president but also the variety of possible influences on their religious faith, such as their upbringing and education.
