National Review Institute supports the fellows in part by promoting their books.

In 2022, we highlighted three books at events around the country: The Drift: Stopping America’s Slide to Socialism (Regnery, November 2021) by Kevin Hassett; The War on the West: How to Prevail in the Age of Unreason (Broadside Books, April 2022) by Douglas Murray; and There’s No Free Lunch: 250 Economic Truths (Post Hill Press, November 2021) by NRI trustee David Bahnsen.

Richard Brookhiser’s book tour for Give Me Liberty: A History of America’s Exceptional Idea (Basic Books, 2019) was cut short by COVID-19. However, we quickly turned his tour into a book club, hosting four virtual events with the author. Because of the success of these events and the positive feedback we received, NRI decided to continue the book club as quarterly installments.

We concluded a 12-city book tour for Andrew C. McCarthy in January 2020 for his book Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency (Encounter Books, 2019).

In 2019 we hosted a tour for former fellow Kevin D. Williamson’s The Smallest Minority: Independent Thinking in the Age of Mob Politics (Gateway Editions, 2019).

In 2018, we hosted three multi-city book tours to highlight Richard Brookhiser (John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court, Basic Books, 2018), and former fellows Reihan Salam (Melting Pot or Civil War?: A Son of Immigrants Makes the Case Against Open Borders, Sentinel, 2018) and Jonah Goldberg (Suicide of the West: How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics is Destroying American Democracy, Crown Forum, 2018).
