Tom Ricks Virtual Event 

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tom Ricks will discuss his bestselling new book, First Principles: What America's Founders Learned from the Greeks and Romans and How That Shaped Our Country, in which he offers lessons for our fraught political moment. "Ricks," writes Virgina DeJohn Anderson in the New York Times, "urges Americans to fix their government so that it protects citizens from the inevitable lapses of a fallible people and, perhaps, even more fallible leaders.”

A former military correspondent for the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, Ricks is also the author of "Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq, 2003-04"; and "The Generals: American Military Command from World War II to Today."
