To coincide with the Reagan Library’s new Vatican Splendors exhibition, the Reagan Foundation will be bringing in faith-based speakers and authors. The first in this series was a lecture and book signing with former star college and CFL quarterback, pastor, and four-term U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts with his latest book, Dig Deep: 7 Truths to Finding the Strength Within (Publish Date: March 7, 2016).

In Dig Deep, J.C. Watts offers seven powerful maxims that have kept him grounded throughout his roller-coaster career from star college quarterback to U.S. Congressman. The first black Republican ever elected to a leadership position in Congress, Watts resisted the rat-race of Washington and eventually declined re-election. His seven simple principles are a blueprint for living a fulfilling and meaningful life without falling to the temptations of reckless ambition or indulgence. Dig Deep is a powerful, simple guide that will help readers find the courage and faith to live the best life possible.

Although registration for this event is closed, this is a  free event and everyone is still welcome to attend both the lecture and book  signing (books must be purchased at the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive  signature).  Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13th!
