Program Type:Author Talks, Lectures
Join us either in the Scott Room or online to hear from author, political analyst, and documentary film-maker Chris Whipple. Mr. Whipple will be joining us to discuss his latest book, The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden's White House, an extraordinary history of the last two years.
In January of 2021, the Biden administration inherited the most daunting array of challenges since FDR’s presidency: a lethal pandemic, a plummeting economy, an unresolved twenty-year war, and the aftermath of an attack on the Capitol that polarized the country. Waves of crises followed, including the fallout from a divisive Supreme Court, raging inflation, and Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. With remarkable access both to the president and his inner circle, Mr. Whipple delivers a stunning portrait of politics on the edge.
This event was made possible with the generous support of the Scarsdale Forum and the Yale Westchester Alumni Association. Copies of The Fight of His Life will be available for purchase from Bronx River Books and for signing after the event for participants in the Scott Room. Refreshments will be served.
