Cal Thomas, "Why Washington Doesn't Work"

April 28th at 7:00pm

Author and columnist Cal Thomas will join the Institute to discuss his latest book, What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America, as part of the Institute’s Bookmark Series.

In What Works, Thomas probes and provides answers to questions such as: Why must we constantly fight the same battles over and over? Why don’t we consult the past and use common sense in order to see that what others discovered long ago still works today? Why does present-day Washington too often look like the film Groundhog Day, with our elected officials waking up each day only to repeat identical talking points from previous days, months, and years?

Thomas is the author or co-author of numerous books that address politics, popular culture, and faith. As a 45-year veteran of broadcast and print journalism, Thomas has been observing events in Washington for decades. He began his career in radio, TV, and print at the age of 16.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of his syndicated column. He has worked for NBC, CNBC, PBS television, and FOX News. He has appeared on NBC Nightly News, Nightline, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN's Crossfire, Larry King Live and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

In 1995, Thomas was honored with a Cable Ace Award nomination for Best Interview Program. Other awards include a George Foster Peabody team reporting award, and awards from both the Associated Press and United Press International.

A book sale and signing will follow the discussion.
