Tryon Palace Presents: Stedman Graham and Robert J. Brown
Aug 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Tryon Palace Presents: Stedman Graham and Robert J. Brown @ North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

While our identity starts with us, authors Stedman Graham and Robert J. Brown will offer specific knowledge and directions on how can we identify leadership and our own identity.

Stedman Graham will discuss his latest book, “Identity Leadership,” and discuss how a leader is unable to lead others until he or she can first lead themselves. The more you work on yourself, the better you can give to those around you. Graham will give his own prescriptive on how to guide based on his own philosophy.

Robert J. Brown will discuss his memoir, “You Can’t Go Wrong Doing Right,” and share his story of how a child of poverty rose to the White House and helped change the world. Brown believes the pivotal moments in life are the lessons that help us think differently about success and how we share that knowledge with each other.

After the lecture, join us for a reception and book signing. Both books will be available for purchase in the Tryon Palace Museum Store.

Allen was born in and grew up in Fayetteville, NC, and spent time each summer with his grandparents in Oriental. From an early age he was fascinated by cultures of the world and particularly Native American culture. As a child he picked up numerous pottery shards on his grandparents’ farm at Teach’s Point and wondered about those ancient inhabitants. He graduated from N.C.
