This week on Well Read, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jon Meacham will be speaking with hosts Terry Tazioli and Mary Anne Gwinn about his latest political biography, Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush (2015). Known for a slew of New York Times bestsellers—from American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House (2008) to Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power (2012)—Meacham’s most recent memoir draws from diary entries, tape recordings, and a series of personal interviews with the former POTUS. In the video clip above, Meacham shares book recommendations and chats with Tazioli about his favorite writer and what’s at the top of his reading list (hint: it sounds familiar!).
