Since 1974, George F. Will has been a steadfast voice of wisdom and reason for the American people. One of this country’s leading columnists and the author of fifteen previous books, Mr. Will has been called “perhaps the most powerful journalist in America” by the Wall Street Journal. Now, he returns with his ninth and most expansive collection reflecting on American culture and the many attacks on expertise, rationality, and conduct by American institutions, courts, political arenas, and social venues in recent times.

In American Happiness and Discontents: The Unruly Torrent, 2008-2020, Mr. Will examines a remarkably unsettling thirteen years in our nation’s history, from 2008 to 2020. Leavened by his signature wit, this collection brings clarity to a period of cultural change and unrest.

Mr. Will addresses every facet of the American experience, from the American Revolutionary War to a scathing assessment of how State of the Union Addresses are delivered in the modern day. Utilizing several columns about court cases, primarily from the Supreme Court, Mr. Will also illuminates concerns regarding the composition of the federal judiciary.

Mr. Will will be in conversation with Peter W. Tragos, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction at New Trier High School D203, Winnetka, IL.

This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
