Great Presidential Inaugural Addresses
With John Ford and John H. Miller
Date: Four sessions on Wednesdays, March 29, April 5, 12, 19
Location: Van Lennep Auditorium, CBMM Campus
United States Presidential Inaugural addresses are, as a group, largely forgettable. But some are such enduring masterpieces their words, images, and thoughts continue to inspire us and to define or re-define what it means to be an American. We will study several of these speeches and examine their literary style and strategies as well as the historical, political, and cultural contexts within which they were written. We invite you to join us in a close analysis of these significant rhetorical and ritual occasions in our nation’s history.
Members $30 | Non-Members $45
