At noon on Saturday, I’ll be in at the university book store Charlottesville for the Virginia Festival of the Book, on a panel titled “American History: Our Government at Work.” I’ll be talking about the first presidential impeachment, based on my book Impeached. My co-panelists will be:
- Brian Balogh, of UVA, author of Government Out of Sight, The Mystery of National Authority in Nineteenth-Century America. I suspect his title elicits many comments along the lines of . . .. “If only government were out of sight now!”
- Guian McKee, also of UVA, author of The Problem of Jobs: Liberalization, Race, and Deindustrialization in Philadelphia.
Brian also is co-host of an NPR show called “The History Guys,” which might be worth a listen for you.
If you’re in Charlottesville this weekend, I hope to see you there!
