VIRTUAL: An Evening
Tuesday, Feb. 2, 7 p.m.
The Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with Jonathan Alter, author of His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, A Life. Carter is the only American president who essentially lived in three centuries: his early life on the farm in the 1920s without electricity or running water might as well have been in the nineteenth; his presidency put him at the center of major events in the twentieth; and his efforts on conflict resolution and global health set him on the cutting edge of the challenges of the twenty-first. Drawing on fresh archival material and five years of extensive access to Carter and his entire family, Alter offers an engrossing, monumental biography that will change our understanding of perhaps the most misunderstood president in American history.
