On the next Great Conversations, airing Monday, April 2 at 9/8 pm on KET, David Frum, senior editor at The Atlantic and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, discusses his book Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic. He is interviewed by former U.S. Representative David Jolly.

Frum’s previous works include Dead Right (1994) – which the New York Times described at the time as “the smartest book written from the inside about the American conservative movement” – as well as What’s Right (1996), How We Got Here (2000) and The Right Man: The Surprise Presidency of George W. Bush (2003).
