David Von Drehle in Conversation with Rick Atkinson
- May 23, 2023
The author of The Book of Charlie: Wisdom from the Remarkable American Life of a 109-Year-Old Man comes to DC on Thurs., May 25th, at 7 p.m.!
David Von Drehle came to understand that Charlie’s resilience and willingness to grow made this remarkable neighbor a master in the art of thriving through times of dramatic change. As a gift to his children, he set out to tell Charlie’s secrets. The Book of Charlie is a gospel of grit — the inspiring story of one man’s journey through a century of upheaval. The history that unfolds through Charlie’s story reminds you that the United States has always been a divided nation, a questing nation, an inventive nation — a nation of Charlies in the rollercoaster pursuit of a good and meaningful life.
