Meet Ann Coulter

Jul 13, 2015@6:00 PM


Author of: Adios, America

Hosted by AM 870 THE ANSWER

Ann Coulter, author of 10 New York Times best sellers, returns with her new release Adios, America

In Adios, America, she touches the third rail in American politics, attacking the immigration issue head-on and flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants’ crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their “charity,” and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants—all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that’s tearing the country apart.

Ann Coulter writes a popular syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate and is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including The Today Show, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity.

Meet Kate Andersen Brower

Aug 19, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of the New York Times #1 Best Seller, The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House

The Residence offers an intimate account of the service staff of the White House, from the Kennedys to the Obamas.

America’s First Families are unknowable in many ways. No one has insight into their true character like the people who serve their meals and make their beds every day. Full of stories and details by turns dramatic, humorous, and heartwarming, The Residence reveals daily life in the White House as it is really lived through the voices of the maids, butlers, cooks, florists, doormen, engineers, and others who tend to the needs of the President and First Family.

Combining incredible first-person anecdotes from extensive interviews with scores of White House staff members—many speaking for the first time—with archival research, Kate Andersen Brower tells their story.

Meet Roham Alvandi

Aug 25, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of Nixon, Kissinger, and the Shah: The United States and Iran in the Cold War

In this groundbreaking study Roham Alvandi offers a new account of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi's relationship with the United States by examining the partnership he forged with President Nixon and Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. Based on extensive research in the British and U.S. archives, as well as a wealth of Persian-language diaries, memoirs, and oral histories, this work restores agency to the shah as an autonomous international actor and suggests that Iran evolved from a client to a partner of the United States under the Nixon Doctrine.

"Nixon, Kissinger, and the Shah" offers a detailed account of the key historical episodes in the Nixon-Kissinger-Pahlavi partnership that shaped the global Cold War far beyond Iran's borders. This work of American diplomatic history, international relations, and Middle Eastern Studies provides critical historic background on Iran's ambitions for primacy in the Persian Gulf, its nuclear program, and what a US-Iran strategic partnership might look like in the future.

Meet Irv Gellman

Sep 02, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of The President and The Apprentice: Eisenhower and Nixon, 1952-1961

We think we know the history of Ike and Dick, but Dr. Irv Gellman reveals a different Eisenhower, and a different Nixon in his new book, The President and the Apprentice.

Dr. Gellman's revelatory book will debunk the myths of the Eisenhower administration and the often-misunderstood relationship between President Eisenhower and his apprentice, and successor, Richard Nixon. Irwin F. Gellman is the author of four previous books on American presidents. He is currently at work on a volume on Nixon and Kennedy.


Meet Evan Thomas

Sep 08, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of Being Nixon: A Man Divided

The New York Times bestselling author of Ike’s Bluff and Sea of Thunder brings new life to one of American history’s most infamous, paradoxical, and enigmatic politicians: Richard Nixon.

Dispensing with the myths to achieve an intimate and evenhanded look at the man himself, Evan Thomas delivers the best single-volume biography of Nixon to date, a radically different portrait of a complicated figure.

Evan Thomas is one of the most respected historians and journalists writing today. He is the bestselling author of six works of nonfiction and the former editor at large of Newsweek, where he served as the magazine's lead writer on major news events and the author of more than a hundred cover stories.

Meet Ray Kelly

Sep 28, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting Its Empire City

Former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly will discuss his new gripping memoir about his lifelong fight against crime and the work of his groundbreaking anti-terrorist teams following the 9/11 attacks.

After serving as a Marine in Vietnam, Ray Kelly soared through the NYPD ranks in decades marked by riots, drugs, and a staggering murder rate. With an unwavering belief in justice, integrity, courage, and loyalty, Kelly developed a reputation as a fixer who could clean up troubled precincts. Those values catapulted him into his first stint as commissioner, where Kelly oversaw the police response to the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.

Following leadership positions at Interpol, the Treasury Department, and U.S. Customs, Kelly was again appointed police commissioner in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Realizing that New York's security meant national security, Kelly transformed the NYPD into a counter-terrorism force.

Meet Peter Wallison

Sep 29, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of Hidden in Plain Sight: What Really Caused the World’s Worst Financial Crisis and Why It Could Happen Again

The 2008 financial crisis was a major event, equivalent in its initial scope – if not its duration – to the Great Depression of the 1930s. What caused it will be debated for years. Conventional wisdom claims that the crisis was caused by Wall Street greed and insufficient regulation of the financial system. Thus, the most comprehensive financial-system regulation since the New Deal – the Dodd-Frank Act – was enacted. Peter J. Wallison, however, offers a compelling, competing narrative that contends the crisis was actually caused by government housing polices and that in reality the Dodd-Frank Act has only served to slow the recovery from the recession.

Peter J. Wallison is the Arthur F. Burns Chair in Financial Policy Studies and is co-director of AEI's program on Financial Policy Studies and former White House counsel under President Reagan.


Meet Niall Ferguson

Oct 06, 2015@7:00 PM


Author of Kissinger: Volume I: The Idealist, 1923-1968

Acclaimed historian and New York Times best selling author Niall Ferguson examines the first half of Henry Kissinger's extraordinary life in this definitive biography, based on unprecedented access to his private papers.

In this first of two volumes, Ferguson shows that what Kissinger achieved before his appointment as Richard Nixon’s national security adviser was astonishing in its own right.


Meet Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter

Oct 19, 2015@7:00 PM


Authors of The Nixon Tapes: 1973

When The Nixon Tapes: 1971–1972 was published in August of 2014, it jumped immediately onto the New York Times best sellers list and captivated media attention for its many revelations.

Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter’s efforts to transcribe and annotate the highlights of more than 3,700 hours of recorded conversations provided an unprecedented and fascinating window into the inner workings of a momentous presidency.

Now, with a concluding volume to cover the final year of the Nixon taping system, Brinkley and Nichter tell the rest of the story — once again with revelations on every page.

Meet Newt and Callista Gingrich

Oct 21, 2015@7:00 PM


Newt Gingrich is the author of Duplicity: A Novel

Callista Gingrich is the author of Christmas in America

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich returns to the Nixon Library to discuss the 2016 elections, the state of American poltics and his new novel Duplicity, a gripping thriller to which he brings an unparalleled understanding of Washington's corridors of power.

Callista Gingrich will be signing the latest book in her New York Times best selling series featuring Ellis the Elephant, Christmas in America.
