GOVERNOR JOHN KASICH

LECTURE AND BOOK SIGNING

Author of Two Paths: America Divided or United

2016 presidential candidate, Ohio governor and former nine-term congressman, John Kasich is coming to the Nixon Library to talk his experiences from the campaign trail and his hopes for America’s future.

As Governor Kasich began his race for the presidency, he was considered a long shot by politicians and the media, but his positive message struck a resonant chord with American voters.

Governor Kasich is uniquely qualified to answer the key question of our times: will America be divided…or united?

He will sign copies of his book following the lecture. Books can be purchased at the Nixon Library Museum Store the day of the event.

Devery Anderson – Talk and Book Signing

Author of Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement

Devery Anderson offers the first truly comprehensive account of the 1955 murder and its aftermath.

It tells the story of Emmett Till, the fourteen-year-old African American boy from Chicago brutally lynched for a harmless flirtation at a country store in the Mississippi Delta. Anderson utilizes documents that had never been available to previous researchers, such as the trial transcript, long-hidden depositions by key players in the case, and interviews given by Carolyn Bryant to the FBI in 2004 (her first in fifty years), as well as other recently revealed FBI documents. Anderson also interviewed family members of the accused killers, most of whom agreed to talk for the first time, as well as several journalists who covered the murder trial in 1955.

This book will stand as the definitive work on Emmett Till for years to come.
