The Time of Our Lives
“LIVE from the NYPL: Tom Brokaw in conversation with Paul Holdengraber” was a program of the New York Public Library in the Celeste Bartos Forum.
Tom Brokaw, former managing editor and anchor for “NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw,” presented his thoughts on the current state of American society and politics in his book The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation about America; Who We Are, Where We’ve Been, and Where We Need to Go Now, to Recapture the American Dream. The author of The Greatest Generation argued that the country has moved away from many of the core values from generations past, such as public service and frugality. Mr. Brokaw detailed how these ideas are still relevant and can be used to benefit the United States today and into the future. Tom Brokaw was interviewed on stage by Paul Holdengraber and also responded to questions from members of the audience.
