Amity Shlaes, author of a new book on Calvin Coolidge, and a Trustee of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation, will be launching and signing her widely praised new book Coolidge at the President Calvin Coolidge Museum and Education Center, in Plymouth Notch, VT, on Feb 17, at 2pm. This event is sponsored by the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation, and the Yankee Bookshop will be providing books and audio books for sale at this event with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to the Coolidge Foundation. There will be a small reception following the talk. The permanent exhibit will also be open for those wishing to learn more about President Calvin Coolidge.
Coolidge is a brilliant and provocative reexamination of America’s 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, and the decade of unparalleled growth that the nation enjoyed under his leadership. In this riveting biography, Shlaes traces Coolidge’s improbable rise from a tiny town in New England to a youth so unpopular he was shut out of college fraternities at Amherst College up through Massachusetts politics. After a divisive period of government excess and corruption, Coolidge restored national trust in Washington and achieved what few other peacetime presidents have: He left office with a federal budget smaller than the one he inherited. Shlaes is also the author of The Forgotten Man and The Greedy Man.
