Now in its 13th year, the Bennett Forum on the Presidency is a signature program of the Truman Library Institute and features high-profile speakers discussing the presidency and America’s form of democracy. The 2019 installment of this beloved program will focus on current events viewed through the lens of our nation’s history, including America’s greatest presidents, their leadership and their decision-making styles.

The 13th Annual Bennett Forum on the Presidency will feature an insightful conversation between former U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and The Washington Post’s David Von Drehle.

Please join us for this special program, which includes stimulating dialogue between our panelists followed by a Q&A-style conversation with the audience. This program has consistently sold out in recent years, so make plans to secure your tickets early.

Truman Library Institute members receive FREE tickets to the Bennett Forum and are able to secure their tickets during an exclusive priority period from October 1 – 18. All others may purchase tickets for $10 each beginning October 19, assuming tickets are still available.

All events listed in the calendar are free unless noted.
