Steve Inskeep Event

Steve Inskeep, beloved cohost of NPR’s Morning Edition, shares the controversial story of early American democracy in Jacksonland: President Andrew Jackson, Cherokee Chief John Ross, and a Great American Land Grab. Kirkus Reviews calls the book “a sober, balanced examination of the origins of one of the more regrettable chapters in American history.” Principal Chief John Baker of the Cherokee Nation says, “Steve Inskeep tells the story fairly and pays proper due diligence to the politics of the day, especially the treatment of the Five Civilized Tribes.” Inskeep’s investigative journalism has received an Edward R. Murrow Award, a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award. He is also the author of Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi.
