Meet David Horowitz
Aug 7 @ 7:00 PM

David_Horowitz_rsAuthor of Take No Prisoners: A Guide to Winning the Political Wars

FREE EVENT ADMISSION

New York Times bestselling author, president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, founder of FrontPageMag.com, and a frequent commentator on Fox News and other networks is coming to the Nixon Library to speak and sign copies of his new book Take No Prisoners.

Horowitz says it’s time for conservatives to take the gloves off—and take our country back. In his new book, Horowitz sounds a clarion call for conservatives to use liberals’ political playbook against them in the fight for America’s future.

From his days as a founder of the radical New Left movement in the 1960s to his storied career as a leading conservative activist, Horowitz has a lifetime of experience in battleground politics.
