Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch will discuss

his new collection of essays about the American Constitution

Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch will discuss his new rich collection of essays about the American Constitution, his path to the Supreme Court of the United States, and talk about the duty of the American citizenry to keep their republic strong and free.

Appointed by President Trump in 2017 to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Gorsuch attained a long list of legal and scholarly accomplishments before reaching the nation’s highest court. A graduate of Columbia College (B.A.), Oxford (D. Phil), and Harvard Law School (J.D.), Gorsuch clerked for the United States Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, before clerking for Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. He’s worked as a lawyer in private practice, and as principal deputy to the associate attorney general, helping to oversee areas of constitutional law, civil rights, and environmental regulation.

In 2006, President George W. Bush appointed Justice Gorsuch to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in his hometown of Denver, Colorado.

Signed copies of Justice Neil Gorsuch’s book, “A Republic, If You Can Keep It”  will be in high demand the night of the event and only limited quantity will be available. To ensure you receive a copy, order one at check out when purchasing tickets to attend this event.

Author of Kissinger on Kissinger: Reflections on Diplomacy, Grand Strategy, and Leadership

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 AT 7:30PM
LECTURE & BOOK SIGNING
FREE ADMISSION

Winston Lord — former U.S. Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China — will discuss the Nixon administration’s vision for diplomacy with China, the Soviet Union, Vietnam, and the Middle East, which laid the foundations for geopolitics as we know them today.

Kissinger on Kissinger represents the one and only collection of Oral History interviews with Dr. Henry Kissinger. The interviews were produced by the Nixon Foundation, and conducted by Ambassador Lord, Dr. Kissinger’s one-time associate in the Nixon White House.

The revealing interviews capture Kissinger’s thoughts on the specific challenges that he faced during his tenure as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State, his general advice on leadership and international relations, and stunning portraits of the larger-than-life world leaders of the era who he knew, worked with, and admired.

Nicholas Sarantakes on Nixon and Sports

Faninchief
Author of Fan in Chief: Richard Nixon and American Sports, 1969-1974

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15 AT 7PM
LECTURE & BOOK SIGNING

Nicholas Evan Sartantakes, Professor of History at the Naval War College, will discuss President Nixon’s intertwined, and relatively unknown, relationship with the spectacle of American sports.

While in office, President Nixon did a lot more than just throw out the first baseball of the season; he was a genuine baseball and football fan, and his interest and engagement in American sports had an impact on the culture of the nation.

In this in-depth study, Sarantakes argues that sports are central to understanding Richard Nixon. When watching sports or attending athletic events, Nixon was his most unguarded and articulate. Consequently, Nixon was able to use sports in a way that communicated a recreational pastime, allowing him to effectively express his leadership, values, and policies to the American people.
