The St. Mary’s County Public Library is hosting an author talk with St. Mary’s College Professor of History Charles J. Holden, along with Jerald E. Podair, two of the authors of the book “Republican Populist: Spiro Agnew and the Origins of Donald Trump’s America” via Zoom on Wednesday, August 4 from 7-8 p.m. A political portrait of Spiro Agnew from his pre–vice presidential career through his scandal-driven fall from office and beyond, their book is an examination of Agnew’s role as one of the founding fathers of the modern Republican Party. Holden and Podair will discuss the book and historical context in a panel format, followed by a question and answer session as time allows.
