In Dead Presidents, public radio host and reporter Brady Carlson takes readers on an epic trip to presidential gravesites, monuments, and memorials from sea to shining sea. With an engaging mix of history and contemporary reporting, Carlson explores the death stories of our greatest leaders, and shows that the ways we memorialize our presidents reveal as much about us as they do about the men themselves.
Brady Carlson hosts "All Things Considered" on WPR, bringing the latest Wisconsin news to listeners every weekday afternoon. His first book, Dead Presidents, is a tour of the gravesites of the U.S. presidents. Brady holds a master’s degree from Emerson College in Boston and a bachelor’s degree from Benedictine University in Illinois. He lives in Madison with his wife and three children.
