WASHINGTON – On Monday, January 13, Washington National Cathedral will host an evening of conversation with philanthropist David M. Rubenstein to discuss his new book, “The American Story: Conversations With Master Historians.” Rubenstein’s new book spans the breadth of American history to explore the lives of some of our most beloved leaders, from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln to Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. The compilation of interviews with notable historians and journalists examines the lessons of history and the values that underpin public leadership.

The intimate discussion, hosted by Cathedral Dean Randy Hollerith, is presented by the Institute for Ethics and Public Engagement of the new Cathedral College of Faith & Culture at Washington National Cathedral, which fosters conversations and collaborations that inspire and challenge.

The event is free and open to the public, and media are welcome to attend and film. Spokespeople, including Dean Hollerith will be available onsite for interviews. Media interested in attending must RSVP to Meredith MacKenzie in advance at: [email protected], (202) 412-4270.
