AMITY SHLAES AT BRYANT POND
Best Selling Author Addresses Woodstock Republicans
Bryant Pond, Maine (December 30, 2013) Bestselling author Amity Shlaes was the guest speaker at the Woodstock Republican Committee’s December meeting. She spoke about her two most recent books, The Forgotten Man (2007) and Coolidge (2013), and the results of government attempts to control the economy. Most notably, she dispelled the popular view of Calvin Coolidge as an early 20th century Scrooge who cared little for the citizens of the United States. Instead, using historic references and personal stories, she filled in the human side of “Silent Cal” by showing his deep respect for the Constitution and the gravity and responsibilities of the office of President of the United States.
Through her extensive knowledge of President Coolidge, his life and times, Amity explained that he had an abiding distrust of large government that was a result of his childhood in New England. After assuming the Presidency following Warren G. Harding’s death, Coolidge was elected with 54% of the vote winning 35 of the 48 states despite a rift in the Republican Party that resulted in a three-way race. Remarkably, at the end of Coolidge’s administration the government was smaller that when he took office and, as a direct result of his policies, the Unites States entered a period of tremendous growth and optimism.
Ms. Shlaes is a dynamic speaker and following her talk, spent a considerable amount of time answering questions and speaking with members of the audience. Several people commented that, after listening to her, they were excited and thinking about what they might do to help expose the successful record of smaller government for all voters. The guests thought history’s evidence would help support their efforts in shrinking government and working toward a return to prosperity.
The Woodstock Republican Committee is deeply grateful to Ms. Shlaes for her contribution of time and energy in making this event a success. Similar events are being planned for the future.
Ms. Shlaes was recently elected Chairman of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation. She was previously Director of the 4% Growth Project at the George W. Bush Institute. Ms. Shlaes is also a regular contributor to Forbes Magazine, and Bloomberg News, and was previously an editor at the Wall Street Journal and columnist for the Financial Times. She has won numerous awards including the Hayek Prize for conservative books, the Frederic Bastiat Prize for political economics, the Deadline Club award for opinion writing, and the Front Page award for her Bloomberg columns.

An Evening with Amity Shlaes
December 30, 2013
Ms. Shlaes is the author of The Forgotten Man which was recognized by The National Review as, “the finest history of the Great Depression ever written.”
This year she published Coolidge a biography of the 30th President who, at the end of his term, left the government smaller than it was when he took office. Paul Ryan noted that, “Amity Shlaes shines fresh light on a leader of humble persistence who unexpectedly found himself in the presidency and whose faith in the American people helped restore prosperity during a period of great turmoil.”
Amity is also director of The Four Percent Growth Project, is a columnist for Forbes magazine, and has been an editor for The Wall Street Journal.
In keeping with the season, the proposed topic for the evening will be:
Scrooge as he is reflected in the current economy and popular culture
Space for this event will be limited and it is strongly suggested to RSVP prior to December 16 to ensure you can be accommodated. No one will be admitted without having first RSVPed.
