Ron Chernow will speak on his forthcoming biography, Grant – a portrait of one of our most compelling generals and presidents, Ulysses S. Grant – to be published in 2017.

Since winning the Pulitzer Prize for his New York Times-bestselling historical biography, Washington: A Life, Ron Chernow has continued to be one of America’s most distinguished commentators on politics, business, and finance. Chernow was also the historical adviser to the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Hamilton, inspired by his bestselling biography of the same title, which the New York Times called “moving and masterly…by far the best biography ever written about the man.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has hailed Chernow as “one of the pre-eminent biographers of his generation” and, as a 2015 National Humanities Medal recipient, he has been praised by the National Endowment for the Humanities for “bringing our Nation’s story to life. Through his examination of America’s successful giants and titans, [Chernow] invites his readers to discover their failures and foibles, uncovering enduring lessons that inform our modern era.”

A frequent contributor to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, Chernow is a familiar figure on national radio and television shows, and has appeared in numerous documentaries. He has served as president of PEN American Center, the country’s pre-eminent organization of authors. He also sits on the executive board of the Society of American Historians and is a fellow of the New York Academy of History. He recently joined the board of trustees of Humanity in Action, a global human rights organization that educates and connects young people seeking to become leaders on human and minority rights.
