The John Adams is pleased to announce the second speaker in our fall program, in collaboration with Fulbright Commission the Netherlands. David Frum, journalist at The Atlantic and author, will be joining us to discuss the upcoming presidential elections with Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal.
David Frum will also discuss his latest book Trumpocalypse, in which he digs deep into the causes of our tragic national fragmentation. He also lays out a plan to restore democracy at home – and renew American leadership abroad. You could call it a manual for American survival.
David Frum served as special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush. In Trumpocalypse, Frum analyzes the Trump presidency from a conservative, Republican perspective. He urges the GOP to rethink its future, noting that “no two-party system can remain a democracy unless both parties adhere to democratic values, not just one”.
Join us for an evening about what are shaping up to be the most important elections in American history.
We hope that David Frum will be able to join us in person. We will keep you posted here on our website on whether this will be a face-to-face event or a live conversation online. It’s out of our hands – but rest assured that we would be delighted to see all of you in person again!
TICKETS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE AT A LATER STAGE.
