David McCullough

Pulitzer Prize Winner; Author, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris

Howard Leach, Former U.S. Ambassador to France - Moderator

Celebrated author, historian and Presidental Medal of Freedom recipient McCullough presents the enthralling, inspiring - and until now untold - story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, architects and others of high aspiration who set off for Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, ambitious to excel in their work. Most had never left home, never experienced a different culture. None had any guarantee of success. That they achieved so much for themselves and their country profoundly altered American history. Come hear this extraordinary story from one of the pre-eminent chroniclers of our national history.
