Get ready for Vive le Livre!

Jefferson enthusiast Cutter Hughes offers a perspective on the changing attitudes toward Thomas Jefferson in our nation’s history.

Cutter outlines Vive author Jon Meacham’s public thoughts on Jefferson, with a special nod to Meacham’s presidential biography, "Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power," available in November 2012.

Vive le Livre is the Huntsville Library Foundation’s Annual Gala Fundraising Event.  An evening set aside to celebrate the book, Vive features a great contemporary author for dinner, keynote address and book signing.  This year Vive features Jon Meacham on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:00 in the North Hall of the VBC.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and contributing editor at TIME, Jon Meacham is one of America's most prominent public intellectuals. Known as a skilled raconteur and an accomplished historian with a depth of knowledge about politics, religion, and current affairs, he understands and analyzes how issues and events impact modern life.

This is a joint program sponsored by Huntsville-Madison County Public Library and LearningQUEST. Read more about Vive le Livre Preview. Thomas Jefferson: American Perspectives
