As a testament to the enduring interest of Americans with the lives of our Presidents, biographies of our chief executives continue to be published. For example, a few of the upcoming presidential biographies scheduled to come out in 2015 include the following:
- Reagan: The Life by H.W. Brands
- American Ulysses, by Ronald C. White, Jr.
- George H.W. Bush, by Jon Meacham
A good list: Stephen Floyd, who is reading through and reviewing presidential biographies on his website “My Journey Through the Best Presidential Biographies,” maintains a good online list of upcoming presidential biographies. Click here to map out your reading schedule for this year!
