Kai Bird
Outlier: The Life & Presidency of Jimmy Carter

We are honored to have Pulitzer Prize Winner, Kai Bird, present an illuminating re-evaluation of the complex triumphs and tragedies of Jimmy Carter’s presidential legacy. Ever since Ronald Reagan’s landslide win in November 1980, pundits have labeled Jimmy Carter’s single term in the White House a failed presidency. But Carter’s time as president is a compelling and under-explored story which was marked by both accomplishment and adversity. Kai Bird will help us see Carter’s presidential tenure with new eyes.

Kai Bird is a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer and Director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography at City University of New York. He is the author of biographies of Jimmy Carter, J. Robert Oppenheimer, John J. McCloy, McGeorge Bundy and the late CIA officer, Robert Ames.
