David Rubenstein

and American Icons Celebrate Our Nation

America-bashing has become fashionable in recent years; the Right is convinced that the American dream is in peril, the Left has mocked it as a farce from the first.

But David Rubenstein, Chairman of the Board of both the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Council on Foreign Relations, has become a bestselling author by reminding Americans of the guiding dream at the heart of our national story. His latest book, The American Experiment, explores the dynamic arc of a young country constantly reinventing itself with ingenuity, popular energy and faith — even in the face of setbacks and suffering — through a series of conversations with American icons.

Rubenstein will discuss what those conversations, with Madeleine Albright, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Paul Simon, Rita Moreno, Ken Burns and Walter Isaacson among others, reveal about the American spirit.

As well as a civic leader, philanthropist, bestselling author and host of his own television show, David Rubenstein is cofounder and co-executive chairman of the private equity firm The Carlyle Group.
