Authors on Audio: A Conversation with David M. Rubenstein

An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.


Along with being a co-founder of the highly successful private-investment firm the Carlyle Group, David M. Rubenstein is a leader in patriotic philanthropy. His transformative gifts have helped restore countless iconic structures, among them the Washington Monument, Monticello, Mount Vernon, the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the Kennedy Center. His abiding love of U.S. history also inspired his new book, The American Story: Conversations with Master Historians, which features a foreword by Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden.

Rubenstein recently spoke about the work with author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here. And click here to read the Independent’s review of The American Story, which was also included on our “51 Favorite Books of 2019” list.
