A Preview of Brookhiser

If you want a preview of Thursday night’s lecture by Richard Brookhiser (Lee Chapel, 7:30 p.m.), you can catch a segment with him on The Colbert Report from August 28, 2008. Brookhiser talks with Colbert about his new book, “George Washington on Leadership,” which is the same title as his lecture here Thursday. You can either watch the entire Colbert episode or fast forward to about 14:30 of the show when Brookhiser’s interview begins.

Brookhiser is unlikely to get into the issue of Washington’s teeth and 18th century dentistry in his lecture in Lee Chapel, but he couldn’t avoid it with Colbert.

Brookhiser is the first speaker sponsored by W&L’s Johnson Program in Leadership and Integrity.
