Rick Perlstein | The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan

Tue, August 5, 2014 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Rick Perlstein’s bestselling Nixonland, the “sprawling, rollicking” and “fervid” (New York Times Book Review) second volume in a trilogy mapping the political history of conservatism in America, was named one of the best nonfiction books of 2009 by more than a dozen publications. The “hypercaffeinated Herodotus of the American century” (The Nation), Perlstein has written for The New Republic, Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, the Washington Post, and many other magazines and newspapers. The Invisible Bridge, the highly anticipated third volume in his trilogy, chronicles the downfall of Nixon and the ascension of Ronald Reagan to the national political arena.
