Elson Lecture: John Darman, Landslide: LBJ and Ronald Reagan at the Dawn of a New America
Atlanta History Center, Thursday, October 2 at 8pm
Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan were polar opposites in political philosophy and personal style. But over the course of a thousand crucial days—from Johnson’s ascent to the presidency in November 1963 to Reagan’s election as governor of California in November 1966—their lives intersected, and the stories they told the country became intertwined. In Landslide: LBJ and Ronald Reagan at the Dawn of a New America, Jonathan Darman examines this critical period in the lives of these two towering figures, locating in their stories the roots of America’s current political divide.

With fluid storytelling and vivid, fly-on-the-wall character portraits, Darman re-creates the anxious mood of America in the turbulent years between the Johnson and Reagan landslides. He shows how, in the span of a thousand days, two men who shared little else besides an almost pathological need to play the hero in the dramatic enactment of a national myth managed to unravel the consensus that had governed the country since the New Deal. And Darman explains why their dreams of a new world have proven so inadequate in addressing the real problems of the complex, imperfect one in which we live.

Jonathan Darman is a former political reporter for Newsweek, where he covered numerous campaigns, including John Edwards’s 2008 run. He lives in New York City. This is his first book.

Support: The Elson Lectures are made possible with generous funding from Ambassador and Mrs. Edward Elson.

MMH Lecture: Linda Tirado, Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America
The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Monday, October 6 at 7pm
Last fall, after a particularly grueling shift at work, Linda Tirado fired off a response to a question in an online forum that asked: Why do poor people do things that seem so self-destructive?

As a perpetually exhausted young mother of two, working two part-time jobs and recently returned to college, Tirado had some hard-won answers to that naïve inquiry, but she certainly never expected the posting to go viral.

Her essay, “Why I Make Terrible Decisions, or poverty thoughts” received incredible media attention from outlets including The Atlantic, The Nation, The Huffington Post and has been read more than six million times. In Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America, Tirado delves deeper into the harsh reality of what it means to be one of the working poor in twenty-first century America. With intelligence, no-holds-barred wit, and often brutal candor, she upends our preconceptions about the lives of the millions who are forced to live below the poverty level.

Linda Tirado is a completely average American with two kids and, up until recently, two jobs.

Tracey Laird, Austin City Limits: A History
Georgia Center for the Book, Monday, October 6 at 7:15pm
Austin City Limits -- the longest running musical showcase in the history of television -- is still captivating audiences forty years after its debut on the air. For decades it has defined the popular roots of music to indie rock—from Willie Nelson’s legendary pilot show to the performances of BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Chet Atkins, Bonnie Raitt Ray Charles, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire and The Decemberists. With unprecedented access behind the scenes at tapings of shows, author Tracey Laird, in Austin City Limits: A History, tells the story of this landmark musical showcase whose history spans dramatic changes in the nature of television, the expansion of digital media, the ways in which we experience music, and explores the ways in which the show’s evolution has driven, and been driven by, both that of Austin as the ”Live Music Capital of the World,” and of U.S. public media as a major player in the dissemination and sponsorship of music and culture.

B.J. Novak, The Book with No Pictures
Georgia Center for the Book, Tuesday, October 7 at 7:15pm
The Georgia Center for the Book is pleased to partner with Little Shop of Stories as we welcome the hilarious and talented B.J. Novak to the Decatur Library Auditorium. You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . . BLORK. Or BLUURF. Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY. Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.) B.J. Novak is a writer, producer, and stand-up comedian who has appeared in Punk’d, The Office, Inglorious Basterds, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Amazing Spiderman 2. (jasbro)… (more)

Gary Shteyngart Book Signing
A Cappella Books, Thursday, October 9 at 7pm
Gary Shteyngart, Little Failure.

After three acclaimed novels (The Russian Debutante's Handbook, Absurdistan, and Super Sad True Love Story), Gary Shteyngart turned to memoir earlier this year in a candid, witty, deeply poignant account of his life so far: Little Failure. Shteyngart shares his American immigrant experience, moving back and forth through time and memory with self-deprecating humor, moving insights, and literary bravado. The result is a resonant story of family and belonging that feels epic and intimate and distinctly his own. The New York Times called it "raw, comic and deeply affecting, a testament to Mr. Shteyngart's abilities to write with both self-mocking humor and introspective wisdom, sharp-edged sarcasm and aching and yes, Chekhovian, tenderness."

On Thursday, October 9 at 7:00 p.m. A Cappella Books presents Mr. Shteyngart at the Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge to celebrate the paperback release of Little Failure.

MMH Lecture: Pamela Druckerman, Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting
The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Friday, October 10 at 7pm
When Pamela Druckerman, an American journalist, had a baby in Paris, she didn’t aspire to become a “French parent.” But she noticed that French children slept through the night by two or three months old. They ate braised leeks. They played by themselves while their parents sipped coffee. And yet French kids were still boisterous, curious, and creative. Why? How?

With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman sets out to learn the secrets behind raising children who are good eaters, sound sleepers, well-behaved, and independent. Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting is the fruit of those efforts.

While charting her own experiences raising three children in Paris, Druckerman interviews Parisian friends and neighbors as well French teachers and childcare experts. Druckerman discovers that French parents are extremely strict about some things, and strikingly permissive about others. The result is children who are just as boisterous, curious, and creative as Americans but far better behaved and more in command of themselves.

Pamela Druckerman is a former staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where she covered foreign affairs. She has also written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Marie Claire, and appeared on the Today show and NPR’s Morning Edition. Her previous book Lust in Translation, was translated into eight languages. She has a master’s degree in international affairs from Columbia. She lives in Paris.

James McPherson, Embattled Rebel: Jefferson Davis as Commander in Chief
Georgia Center for the Book, Monday, October 13 at 7:15pm
From Pulitzer Prize–winning author James McPherson, comes Embattled Rebel: Jefferson Davis as Commander in Chief, a powerful new reckoning with Jefferson Davis as military commander of the Confederacy. History has not been kind to Jefferson Davis. His cause went down in disastrous defeat and left the South impoverished for generations. If that cause had succeeded, it would have torn the United States in two and preserved the institution of slavery. Many Americans in Davis’s own time and in later generations considered him an incompetent leader, if not a traitor. Not so, argues James M. McPherson. In Embattled Rebel, McPherson shows us that Davis might have been on the wrong side of history, but it is too easy to diminish him because of his cause’s failure. In order to understand the Civil War and its outcome, it is essential to give Davis his due as a military leader and as the president of an aspiring Confederate nation. James M. McPherson is the George Henry Davis ’86 Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University. He has published numerous volumes on the Civil War, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom, New York Times bestseller Crossroads of Freedom, Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution, and For Cause and Comrades: Why Men Fought in the Civil War, which won the Lincoln Prize.

Shorter's Way: a Political Love Story About Rambunctious Georgia Politics in the 1920s
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, October 14 at 7:30pm
Be careful what you wish for. Attorney Willie Shorter wishes he could be Georgia’s youngest governor. Laine Becker wishes she could escape a life of drudgery working at Claxton Mill. The Over-the-Hill Boys Club wishes they were back in the game. But fulfilling those wishes comes at a price higher than they expected to pay. As a teenager Willie sells Bibles and patent medicine on the road, where he learns to read people. After law school, he meets The Boys: Pappy Hinshaw, former newspaper man; Chauncey Kennon, retired jackleg attorney; Philemon Van Norman (PV) Ledbetter, Southern aristocrat and bank president; Sol Goldman, owner of Gold’s Mercantile, and Joe Laundry, land owner and gentleman farmer. A tragic mill accident brings Willie and Laine together when he challenges Claxton. The publicity jumps starts his political future and he lures The Boys into helping him. When the characters come together, they get the chance to fulfill their wishes. But there’s always a price to pay…one that may be higher than any of them expected. Men may rule politics in public, but behind the scenes the power lies with women. Laine has a figure that turns heads, and a head for figures that is invaluable to Willie. Mrs. Amanda Swatham, the arbiter of good taste and decorum in Atlanta, takes Laine under her wing and introduces Willie to Atlanta’s old money and power. Mother Ledbetter knows where all the bodies are buried…and who did the burying. Southern politics in the 1920s is all about money, secrets and power and Shorter’s Way is all about how to use them to the best advantage. To fund pet projects and bypass official channels, Willie creates a secret war chest. Although Laine and The Boys try to guard the information, rumors abound. As Willie uses the funds to accomplish his grand plan to bring prosperity to south Georgia, he begins to attract national attention. Rural voters see him as a savior, but men accustomed to ruling party politics see an interloper who needs to be taught a lesson.

Cherokee Garden Library Lecture: Lynden B. Miller, Parks, Plants, and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape
Atlanta History Center, Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm
"Make it gorgeous and they will come. Keep it that way and they will help." - Lynden B. Miller

The Cherokee Garden Library at the Atlanta History Center hosts Lynden B. Miller’s debut appearance in Atlanta, based on her 2009 book, Parks, Plants, and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape, winner of the 2010 American Horticultural Society Book Award. The book chronicles over twenty-five years of experience and gives practical guidance on designing and maintaining public gardens as well as how to raise public and private funds to support them. Her message resonates with park lovers, city planners, architects, landscape architects, civic leaders, and elected officials. She makes the case that “good parks make good cities” and argues that beautiful parks and gardens transform lives, encourage economic development, reduce crime, and change the ways people feel about their city.

In 1982, Miller was invited to restore The Conservatory Garden, a once magnificent, but by then derelict space at 105th and Fifth Avenue, just on the edge of Central Park. She accepted the invitation, a daunting task, and threw herself into the work full force. When The Conservatory Garden work was completed in 1987, New Yorkers and visitors had a glorious new retreat. Miller’s efforts in The Conservatory Garden have set the standard of excellence for public garden design. Since the late 1980s, Miller has created 18 urban parks in-and-around New York City, including projects in the Central Park Zoo, The New York Botanical Garden, and Madison Square Park, as well as many smaller projects in all five boroughs and beyond. She has also designed and enhanced the campus landscapes at Princeton University and Columbia University. Miller serves on the board of directors of the Central Park Conservancy, the New York Botanical Garden, New Yorkers for Parks, and Metro Hort.

Lynden Miller currently serves as director of The Conservatory Garden in Central Park and is a public garden designer of renown both in her native New York and throughout the world. With the urban park initiatives currently underway in Atlanta, her first speaking engagement in the city is timely. Those in attendance can find inspiration from Miller’s practical strategies that help communities thrive by her motto: “Make it gorgeous and they will come. Keep it that way and they will help.”

MMH Lecture: Donald McCaig, Ruth’s Journey: The Story of Mammy from Gone with the Wind
The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Friday, October 17 at 7pm
For more than seventy-five years, Mammy from Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind has endured as one of the most memorable and intriguing characters in literature. Now the Margaret Mitchell Estate has authorized Donald McCaig's Ruth's Journey: The Story of Mammy from Gone with the Wind, the first novel to tell Mammy’s own remarkable story. Before Tara, before Scarlett and Rhett, before she was called Mammy, she was simply Ruth.

Born on a Caribbean island in the throes of revolution, Ruth comes of age in Savannah as the property of Solange Fournier, a formidable French émigré who instructs her in the manners and deportment of Southern society. Ruth’s early marriage to a free black man in Charleston ends in violence and tragedy, resulting in her return to Savannah and Solange, who is now married to wealthy Pierre Robillard. Solange’s daughter Ellen will become the center of Mammy Ruth’s life. Following Ellen’s unexpected marriage to rough Irishman Gerald O’Hara, she and Mammy move to Tara, transforming the ramshackle plantation into a gracious and elegant home. There, Mammy will raise a new generation of O’Hara girls, including the strong-willed Katie Scarlett. Arriving at Tara, Mammy narrates the rest of the story in her own unmistakable voice—drawing her tale to a close in the days following the Twelve Oaks barbecue, as Georgia secedes from the Union, the march to war becomes unstoppable, and the story of Gone With the Wind begins.

Donald McCaig is the award-winning author of Canaan as well as Jacob’s Ladder, designated “the best Civil War novel ever written” by the Virginia Quarterly. It won the Michael Shaara Award for Excellence in Civil War Fiction and the Library of Virginia Award for Fiction.
