Friday, March 15, noted author Kenneth C. Davis is coming to the Downingtown STEM Academy to dialogue with students about the modern American presidency. Mr. Davis is the New York Times bestselling author of the Don’t Know Much About® books, including Don’t Know Much About History, which spent 35 consecutive weeks on the bestseller list, and his most recent work, Don’t Know Much About the American Presidents.
Mr. Davis first interacted with students via Skype in October 2012, and he was so impressed with the students’ depth of Humanities knowledge in a STEM school that he agreed to come visit the STEM Academy. During his visit this Friday, Mr. Davis will tour the school and then meet with approximately 200 sophomore and junior students for a question and answer session about the American presidency, with strong emphasis on post-World War II history.
In an attempt to open this dialogue to many schools, I intend to live-stream the event via my UStream channel. The dialogue will last from approximately 12:45 – 2:00PM EDT. You are encouraged to join the conversation on UStream and ask questions via Twitter using the hashtag #KCD1. Please submit questions, and I will try to balance online questions with questions asked by Downingtown students.
If you have questions prior to our event on Friday, please reply below. I hope you are able to join us in a informative dialogue about the modern presidency!
