Jim Newton: "When Reason Fails: Dwight Eisenhower, Earl Warren and the Little Rock Crisis of 1957"
Start Date: 4/19/2012Start Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Jim Newton will join us to discuss his recently published book, Eisenhower: The White House Years and another best-selling biography, Justice for All: Earl Warren and the Nation He Made.

Newton will discuss the dramatic intersection of Warren and Eisenhower’s lives during the fateful clash over integration of Little Rock High School. He will examine Warren's stewardship of the Supreme Court, and Ike's style as president and how the two first appreciated and later resented one another -- all the while fashioning a functional American center and achieving great progress on the most important domestic issue of their era.

He is a 20-year veteran and editor-at-large of the Los Angeles Times. Newton previously worked as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and as a clerk at the New York Times, where he served as columnist James Reston's assistant in 1985-86. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the recipient of numerous local and national awards in journalism.

Newton will speak as part of the NHIOP Bookmark Series, a new speaker series featuring prominent authors, whose works address political, social, and community issues. Copies of his book, Eisenhower: The White House Years, will be available for sale and Newton will also be signing books after the event.
