The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) invites D.C.-area alumni to join us for a lecture and reception on Oct. 18 featuring best-selling author and Chair of the Board of the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation Amity Shlaes. Shlaes will discuss her book “The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression,” which shattered widely held myths about the Great Depression and the New Deal policies, sharing how she wrote the book against the advice of her newspaper editor in an act of personal “rebellion.” In her talk on “The Secret Power of Rebellion,” Shlaes encourages young people to use “productive rebelliousness” to accomplish challenging goals in life.
