St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, The St. Louis County Library Foundation’s Westfall Politics & History Series, and Left Bank Books present Presidential Speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum, author of “Undelivered: The Never-Heard Speeches that Would Have Rewritten History.”

 

For almost every delivered speech, there exists an undelivered opposite. Senior speechwriter for President Joe Biden, Jeff Nussbaum presents the most notable speeches the public never heard, from Dwight Eisenhower’s apology for a D-Day failure to Richard Nixon’s refusal to resign the presidency, and even Hillary Clinton’s acceptance for a 2016 victory—the latter never seen until now. Examining the content of these speeches and the context of the historic moments that almost came to be, Nussbaum considers not only what they tell us about the past, but also what they can inform us about our present.

 

Doors open at 6:00pm.
Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.
Books available for purchase from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
