David Frum
Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic

David Frum is currently a senior editor at The Atlantic who served as speechwriter and special assistant to President George W. Bush from 2001-2002. He will be speaking about his ninth book, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic, recently published by Harper Collins. Frum is the author of  other eight books, including most recently Why Romney Lost. His first book, Dead Right, was described by Frank Rich of the New York Times as “the smartest book written from the inside about the American conservative movement” and by the late William F. Buckley as “the most refreshing ideological experience in a generation.” Frum’s memoir of the Bush administration, The Right Man, was a #1 New York Times bestseller.
