A Scott Berg to Speak at 2013 Annual Luncheon
November 08, 2013
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum is pleased to announce that Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner A. Scott Berg will be the 2013 Annual Luncheon Speaker on Friday, November 8 at noon at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel and Conference Center in Staunton, Virginia. For over a decade, Mr. Berg, the author of best-selling biographies of Katharine Hepburn and Charles Lindbergh, has been working on his biography of Woodrow Wilson. The book titled “Wilson,” is a fresh look at one of America’s most important and influential Presidents. Filled with new insight and detail, “Wilson” is not only a magnificent biography of a great and often misunderstood President whose ideas and ideals promise to endure for centuries to come, but a riveting narrative that spans seven crucial decades of American history, and above all a deeply emotional exploration of the entirety of Woodrow Wilson’s life – his dreams, his accomplishments, his affairs of the heart, and his all-too-human failings.
This year’s luncheon marks the 53rd anniversary of the Foundation’s first Annual Luncheon, at which President Dwight E. Eisenhower spoke. The luncheon program was started by Emily Pancake Smith, a founding Trustee and long-time President of the Woodrow Wilson Birthplace Foundation.
