Woodrow Wilson is known as the president who passed the first progressive agenda and who was determined to make the world “safe for democracy.” A. Scott Berg’s biography “Wilson” provides a look at Wilson’s life through a more personal perspective.

Though many saw him as being stoic and aloof, Berg paints a picture of a much more complex Wilson. Through letters and documents that had not before been accessed, Berg tells the story of the man he calls the most influential figure of the 21st Century whose personal story he calls “the most dramatic to ever unfold in the White House.”

A. Scott Berg, Author, “Wilson”

Berg will be signing copies of the book at the Library Foundation of LA, at the Mark Tape Auditorium tonight at 7:15pm.
