About the Program
Historian Myron Magnet recounts the personal and public lives of America's founders through an examination of their homes. The author reports on the architectural, social, and political relevancy of each man's private residence; from Washington's Mount Vernon and Jefferson's Monticello to Madison's Montpelier. Myron Magnet discusses his book with Richard Brookhiser, senior editor of National Review at the New York Historical Society.
Myron Magnet is the author of several books, including The Dream and the Nightmare: The Sixties' Legacy to the Underclass.
