March 23, 2012

Bestselling author Ken Gormley will speak about his book, “The Death of an American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr,” chronicling the Clinton presidency scandals on at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, in Swimmer Hall at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The program is being held in cooperation with the Fayette County Bar Association. The event is free and open to the public.

Gormley’s book provides an account of the wide-ranging investigation of President Bill Clinton that divided the nation and nearly toppled Clinton’s presidency. Drawing on never-before released material, Gormley illuminates this battle with a wealth of detail in exclusive interviews with former president Clinton, Ken Starr, Monica Lewinsky and her family, Paula Jones and her lawyers, Linda Tripp and many others.

Gormley is dean and professor at Duquesne University School of Law. Gormey earned a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1977 and received a juris doctor degree from Harvard Law School in 1980.

In 2010, Gormley published “The Death of an American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr,” a New York Times bestseller that received the Bruce K. Gould Book Award, as well as critical acclaim in publications including The New York Times Book Review, Washington Post Book World, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and more. As a result of national and international praise for the book, Gormley has appeared on NBC’s “Today Show,” “The Charlie Rose Show,” “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” NPR’s “Fresh Air,” and hundreds of television and radio shows worldwide.

Program attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the author for autographs.
