McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a “master of the art of narrative.” He won the Pulitzer Prize twice and the National Book Award twice. His books include “Truman,” a biography of the 33rd president; “John Adams,” one of the most praised and widely read American biographies of all time; “1776”; and the New York Times’ bestseller “The Greater Journey: American in Paris.” His work has been published in 10 languages and more than 9 million copies of his books are in print.
McCullough’s visit is sponsored by the Alan B. Larkin Symposium on the American Presidency, which is housed in the Department of History in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. The symposium was established by the family of the late Alan B. Larkin to honor his passion for the American presidency.
