The Kentucky Center
Interviewer to be announced
David Frum is senior editor at The Atlantic and the author of nine books. In 2001-2002, he served as speechwriter and special assistant to President George W. Bush. Trumpocracy, which will be published in January, enlarges on Frum’s March 2017 “How to Build an Autocracy” column in The Atlantic, explaining how Donald Trump has undermined America’s most important institutions, and how his actions will reverberate in America’s future.

The University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum is a non-profit, nationally-recognized literary event. Author Forum programs carefully match an author and interviewer; their hour-long candid conversation takes place before a live audience at The Kentucky Center in Louisville. The event is taped and distributed by KET, Kentucky Educational Television, and airs as the series “Great Conversations” on PBS member stations across the country.
Past guests have included Congressman John Lewis, in conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow; Chris Matthews, with E. J. Dionne; Pat Conroy, with Maureen Corrigan. Our 2016-2017 season featured Thomas Friedman in conversation with Representative John Yarmuth; Joseph Stiglitz in conversation with Rana Foroohar; P.J. O’Rourke in conversation with Robert Siegel; Colson Whitehead in conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald and Sebastian Junger in conversation with Joe Klein.
Viewers in other parts of the country should check their local PBS listings; and, if you don’t find the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum’s “Great Conversations,” we hope you’ll ask your local PBS station to carry it.KAF_LOUMAG_3.875x4
