Join the McCain Institute for International Leadership for its next installment of its book talk virtual series on Wednesday, June 23. This event will feature journalist, author, humanitarian and former alumna of the McCain Institute Next Generation Leader program (2017 cohort) Tara Kangarlou and White House Correspondent for Gray Television and McCain Institute Media Fellow Jon Decker. They will discuss Kangarlou’s newest book, The Heartbeat of Iran: Real Voices of a Country and Its People, which takes readers “on a journey into everyday life in Iran, where we meet the diverse people who make up the country’s delicate socio-cultural, political, and religious mosaic.”

While the U.S. faces a range of challenges these days – both here at home and on the world stage – the McCain Institute maintains that all of them can be met by reaffirming character-driven leadership. To bolster its message, the Institute hosts Authors & Insights Book Talk Series. Through this “reverse book tour,” Institute leaders interview authors of important newly-released books on American politics, policy and leadership with the intention to engage the American people in a dialogue that affirms the importance of character-driven leadership and America’s leadership in the international community. The result will be a blueprint for a brighter future.
