Pulitzer Prize winner to speak at Carter Center

ATLANTA -- A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian will speak about Thomas Jefferson at the Carter Center in November.

Jon Meacham is the author of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power. In his book, he presents Jefferson as a multilayered man who was both a politician and a philosopher.

According to a release from A Cappella Books, which is sponsoring Meacham's appearance:

While Jefferson was passionate about many things -- women, family, books, science, Paris -- he loved America the most, and sought to form the country he envisioned: the creation, survival and success of the popular government in America. Drawing on archives in the United States, England and France, as well as unpublished Jefferson presidential papers, Meacham presents Jefferson as the most successful political leader of the early republic, and perhaps in all of American history.

Meacham will read from, discuss and sign copies of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power on Monday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $38 each or $50 for couples; both prices come with one signed copy of the book.

To buy tickets for Meacham's appearance, go to acappellabooks.com or visit A Cappella Books, which is located at 208 Haralson Avenue in Inman Park.

The Carter Center is located at 453 Freedom Parkway.
