Jon Meacham at The Moveable Feast

*SAT., Oct. 29 ~ Jon Meacham (Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush) at Pawleys Plantation, $50 (includes book)th

From Pulitzer Prize winner and #1 New York Times bestselling author of American Lion, Franklin and Winston and Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power, Jon Meacham, comes Destiny and Power, a sweeping yet intimate biography of George H. W. Bush. Meacham has had the kind of charmed professional life that other journalists can only envy: Newsweek managing editor at 29; editor at 37; author of four books, the latest, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, awarded the Pulitzer Prize last year in biography; currently executive editor and executive vice president at Random House. Destiny and Power reflects the qualities of both subject and biographer: judicious, balanced, deliberative, with a deep appreciation of history and the personalities who shape it. His kinder, gentler approach succeeds in making George H. W. Bush a more sympathetic – and more complex – figure than if the former president had written his own doorstopper. A portion of the proceeds of this Moveable Feast will benefit Hobcaw Barony.

The Moveable Feast is held at area restaurants throughout the year usually on Fridays, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. On occasion, an author’s book tour schedule is accommodated with a mid-week or even a Saturday Moveable Feast. For each feast, the chef prepares an exquisite menu, typically unavailable during the restaurant’s public hours. The presentation precedes the meal. Individuals, couples, friends, book clubs and other groups are assigned table seating. Each literary luncheon is followed by a book signing at Litchfield Books for those unable to participate in the feast.
