Any fans of The History Channel will know who this guy is. H.W. Brands, historian extraordinaire, author, and University of Texas professor, will visit HPUMC as part of the Authors Live series, and man, what a doozy. I considered going to UT for grad school just because of this guy, but that’s another story.
Specifically, Brands will speak about his latest book, Reagan: The Life. But don’t worry, he’s authored five other biographies and a slew of other books — he won’t be running out of speaking material any time soon. Oh, he’s also a New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize finalist. It’s fine.
If you want to go as badly as I do, join in at 7 p.m. on June 3. But of course, there’s always the $30 reception starting at 6 p.m., which gets you a copy of the book. More copies will be available for purchase and signing following the talk. I’m already working on my “I <3 Brands” poster like a common One Direction teenybopper.
