Virtual series on American Presidency

Historian J.B. Andersen will lead a virtual lecture series on the American presidency at 1 p.m. on Tuesdays during October, through the Ramsey County Library.

Andersen will look at some of the most desperate moments in U.S. electoral history—how they happened and how our nation survived. The schedule is:

Oct. 6—Elections at the ­beginning: Founding Fathers Argue

Oct. 13—Entrenched Political Parties: In Fighting and Out Fighting

Oct. 20—Campaigning Begins: Slogans and Sound Bites

Oct. 27—Modern Era: ­Corruption Aplenty

These are online programs offered remotely using Zoom. You must register in advance for the event through the Ramsey County Library website or by calling the library at 651-724-6001. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

This series is co-sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of the University of Minnesota with financial support from the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries.
