Presentation & Booksigning with Douglas Brinkley: Cronkite

Colfax Avenue: Douglas Brinkley is a professor of history at Rice University and a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. The Chicago Tribune has dubbed him “America’s new past master,” and six of his books have been selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Brinkley will discuss and sign his new book Cronkite (HarperCollins), his epic, intimate, and masterfully written biography of Walter Cronkite, an extraordinary American life.

For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as "the most trusted man in America." Yet this very public figure was a remarkably private man. Drawing on unprecedented access to Cronkite's private papers as well as interviews with his family and friends, Douglas Brinkley now brings this American icon into focus as never before.
