An Evening with David Brooks

The National Presbyterian Church

In today’s culture, the drive for external success and attention is so fierce, there’s little time to cultivate inner depth. David Brooks, New York Times columnist and author of the new book, The Road to Character, will lead a free evening presentation exploring true fulfillment in a society that emphasizes professional achievement. Brooks will discuss topics from The Road to Character, which looks at the lives of some of world’s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders to illuminate how character is developed. There will also be a time for audience Q&A, and a book signing. This event is free and no tickets are required.

The National Presbyterian Church is located in northwest DC, a 10 minute walk from the Tenleytown/AU stop on the metro red line. There is ample free parking. 

Lincoln and the Jews: A History

National Archives and Records Administration- William G. McGowan Theater

One hundred and fifty years after Abraham Lincoln's death, Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna tells the full story of Lincoln’s extraordinary relationship with Jews for the first time. Lincoln's lifetime coincided with the emergence of Jews on the national scene in the United States. When he was born, in 1809, scarcely 3,000 Jews lived in the entire country. By the time of his assassination in 1865, large-scale immigration, principally from central Europe, had brought that number up to more than 150,000.  He befriended Jews from a young age, promoted Jewish equality, appointed numerous Jews to public office, had Jewish advisors and supporters starting already from the early 1850s, as well as later during his two presidential campaigns, and in response to Jewish sensitivities, even changed the way he thought and ... morespoke about America.  Joining Dr. Sarna in conversation will be journalist Steven V. Roberts.  A book signing will follow the program.
