Karl Rove to sign new McKinley book at the Ohio Statehouse Dec. 9
November 13, 2015

The Statehouse Museum Shop in partnership with The Book Loft will host a book signing featuring Karl Rove Wed., Dec. 9, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Map Room of the Ohio Statehouse. Mr. Rove’s new release, “The Triumph of William McKinley,” is available for purchase in the Statehouse Museum Shop.

Mr. Rove will be signing his new book, “The Triumph of William McKinley.” The book details the 1896 campaign in which Ohioan William McKinley defeated William Jennings Bryan for the presidency. Offering a new view of President William McKinley’s administration, the book highlights McKinley's revolutionary political strategies and campaign tactics that both parties can find informative in today’s political landscape.

Mr. Rove explains why McKinley and the campaign of 1896 are still relevant, “The challenges of 1896 are similar to those of today: A rapidly changing electorate affected by a growing immigrant population; an uncertain economy disrupted by new technologies; growing income inequality; and contentious issues the two major parties could not resolve. McKinley found ways to address these challenges and win, which is why his campaign is so relevant to our politics now.”

The book signing will be held Wed., Dec. 9, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Map Room of the Ohio Statehouse.

Order “The Triumph of William McKinley.”

The book signing with Joe Hallett and Mike Curtin has been rescheduled for December 16; further details will be forthcoming about this event.
