Featuring a one-hour Preview Screening from "Things of the Spirit" - The first film ever made on the personal and political life of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States.

Following his death in 1933, historians and journalists hijacked Calvin Coolidge from serious consideration by the American people. As a result, the public seldom questions the prevailing view that Coolidge was a do-nothing "capitalist tool" whose presidency served only as a prelude to disaster. "Things of the Spirit" will change that perception. Through primary material, testimony by historians and economists, and unseen archival film rescued and incorporated into this documentary - audiences can, for the first time, gain insight into "perhaps our most misunderstood President." Join us for this fascinating view of Calvin Coolidge - truly a life for our time.
