Lecture and Book Signing

Author of The American Miracle: Divine Providence in the Rise of the Republic

Nationally syndicated radio host, best-selling author, political commentator and veteran film critic Michael Medved returns to the Nixon Library to talk his new book, The American Miracle.

While millions worry over the nation losing its way, Medved’s sweeping narrative, bursting with dramatic events and lively portraits of unforgettable, occasionally little-known characters, affirms America as “fortune’s favorite,” shaped by a distinctive destiny from our beginnings to the present day.

In The American Miracle, bestselling author and radio host Michael Medved recounts some of the most significant events in America’s rise to prosperity and power, revealing a record of improbabilities and amazements that demonstrate what the Founders believed all along: that events unfolded according to some master plan, with destiny playing an unmistakable role in lifting the nation to greatness.

Medved’s daily broadcast ranks among the top ten political talk shows in the US—reaching over 3.5 million listeners on nearly 200 stations across the country.

Meet Bret Baier

Lecture and Book Signing

Fox News Chief Political Anchor and Host of Special Report with Bret Baier

Author of Three Days in January: Dwight Eisenhower’s Final Mission

Bret Baier illuminates the extraordinary yet underappreciated presidency of Dwight Eisenhower in his soon-to-be bestseller on Ike’s final days in office.

He masterfully casts the period between Eisenhower’s now-prophetic farewell address on the evening of January 17, 1961, and Kennedy’s inauguration on the afternoon of January 20 as the closing act of one of modern America’s greatest leaders — during which Eisenhower urgently sought to prepare both the country and the next president for the challenges ahead.

Baier makes clear that Eisenhower, an often forgotten giant of U.S. history, still offers vital lessons for our own time and stands as a lasting example of political leadership at its most effective and honorable.

Bret’s show Special Report with Bret Baier (weeknights 6-7PM/ET), is the top-rated cable news program in its timeslot and consistently one of the top four shows in cable news.
