Author Event Lynne Cheney, Moderated by Vice President Dick Cheney

May 16, 2014

Former Vice President Dick Cheney joined Lynne Cheney at the George W. Bush Presidential Center to discuss her latest book, James Madison: A Life Reconsidered

In this majestic new biography, Mrs. Cheney explores the astonishing story of a man of vaunted modesty who audaciously changed the world. Among the Founding Fathers, Madison was a true genius of the early republic. His visionary political philosophy and rationale for the union of states—so eloquently presented in the Federalist papers—helped shape the country Americans live in today.

"Apart from Ralph Louis Ketcham’s 1971 life, this is probably the best single-volume biography of Madison that we now have." - The New York Times
