Mike Steele

All are welcome to participate in the Alumni & Faculty Authors Series featuring Mike Steele author of Reflections of Robert E. Lee in American Culture.

Professor Mike Steele joined the faculty at Pacific 45 years ago. In that time he has become well known for thoughtful consideration of topics ranging from Notre Dame Football to the Holocaust. In reflections of Robert E. Lee in American Culture, Steele turns that same careful thought to one of the most polarizing figures in American history. This meditation offers an opportunity to contemplate the darkest parts of America, past and present. Steele focuses on the last years of Lee’s life, in which he sees important lessons that can help us “achieve the bright promise of a united people in the future.”

The event will include a reading from Reflections of Robert E. Lee in American Culture and an opportunity to ask questions about the book and the writing process.

This virtual event is free, but advance registration is required.
