Please join us to meet John Avlon, Editor-in-Chief and Managing Director of The Daily Beast and a CNN political analyst, as he speaks about his latest book, Washington’s Farewell: The Founding Father’s Warning to Future Generations.

George Washington’s Farewell Address was a prophetic letter from a “parting friend” to his fellow citizens about the forces he feared could destroy our democracy: hyper-partisanship, excessive debt, and foreign wars.

Once celebrated as civic scripture, more widely reprinted than the Declaration of Independence, the Farewell Address is now almost forgotten. Its message remains starkly relevant. In Washington’s Farewell, John Avlon offers a stunning portrait of our first president and his battle to save America from self-destruction

To RSVP, please call 843-723-9912 or email dreutter@charlestonlibrarysociety.org

Pre-order your copy of Washington’s Farewell and you will save money and won’t have to wait in line to have it signed. All pre-ordered copies will be available the night of the event and will be pre-signed. The Pre-order Price is $24. The last day to pre-purchase your copy is Wednesday, April 12th, so act soon!
