The Foundation is a non-partisan organization which sustains the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, the Reagan Center for Public Affairs, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center and its internationally recognized, award-winning Discovery Center, and the Air Force One Pavilion.

“Where else in California can visitors walk onboard an actual Air Force One aircraft that flew seven U.S. presidents, touch an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall, or lay a hand on a real steel beam recovered from the World Trade Center after 9-11?” said John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. “Families will immerse themselves in history while making memories that will last a lifetime.”
While at the Reagan Library, families can also check out the Reagan Library’s special exhibit, Amazing Automobiles: The Ultimate Car Exhibit, featuring Hollywood, Classic and Heads-of-State cars. The exhibit is in partnership with the Petersen Automotive Museum to showcase some of The Petersen’s most stunning and memorable cars at the Reagan Library while The Petersen is closed to the public for renovation. Most of these cars come from The Petersen’s vault and are not seen by regular museum-goers. Hollywood cars on display include iconic cars such as the Batmobile, and the cars from Grease, Herbie and Thelma and Louise, as well as cars owned by Steve McQueen, Fred Astaire, Elvis Presley and more.

Books must be purchased at the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature, and can be pre-purchased during the reservation process. To reserve seats and/or purchase books, please click here.
Grover Norquist has a plan for cutting taxes for working Americans and for the major corporations that are fleeing for foreign shores. As president of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist is the go-to expert on taxation. Now, Norquist makes the case for a major tax reform, including a possible flat tax. On the current path, America will coast through inertia to ever-growing government and taxation, as entitlements consume more of our national economy. Norquist presents an alternative future where government spending is reformed, and taxes and the IRS radically curtailed. End the IRS Before It Ends Us lays out what taxation in America should look like. Norquist offers a solution where America thrives, and Americans keep their hard-earned cash.

In A Nice Little Place on the North Side, leading columnist George Will returns to baseball with a deeply personal look at his hapless Chicago Cubs and their often beatified home, Wrigley Field, as it turns one hundred years old. This book examines both the unforgettable stories that forged the field’s legend and the larger-than-life characters, from Wrigley and Ruth to Veeck, Durocher, and Banks, who brought it glory, heartbreak, and scandal. Drawing upon his trademark knowledge and inimitable sense of humor, Will also explores his childhood connections to the team, the Cubs’ future, and what keeps longsuffering fans rooting for the home team after so many years of futility. George Will is a columnist, television personality and author. With more than 450 newspapers printing his columns, a biweekly Newsweek column and appearances as a political commentator on ABC, Mr. Will may be one of the most influential writers in America. Mr. Will won the Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for commentary.Book
