Description

Tom Brokaw:

Anchor of the NBC Nightly News and Peabody Award-winner, Tom Brokaw was a fixture in millions of living rooms for 22 years, regaling audiences with history as it broke story-by-story, day-by-day. As an author, Brokaw retains a lively interest in historical subjects: His first bestseller, The Greatest Generation, was a paean to those who fought and won World War II. Other work includes A Long Way From Home, about growing up in the American heartland, and BOOM! Voices of the Sixties. In his latest book, The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation About America, he takes a look at the American Dream through the lens of four generations of families, including his own.
