Library Encounters...

Gary Scott Smith will be speaking in the Special Collections room of the Library on October 31 at 2:30 pm about his recently published book, Faith and the Presidency: From George Washington to George W. Bush, (Oxford University Press). Smith's book focuses on eleven presidents and the role religion has played in their policy-making. The Oxford web site
describes the book as a series of "compelling portraits of the religious lives and presidencies of eleven chief executives for whom religion was particularly important." Dr. Smith's book has received favorable reviews from such notable historians as David L. Holmes, George Marsden, and Mark A. Noll.

Gary Scott Smith is the Chair of the History Department and Coordinator of the Humanities Core at Grove City College. He is the author or editor of six previous books and the 2001 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Pennsylvania Professor of the Year.

Light refreshments will be served. Library Encounters are open to the public.
