New York's famous 92nd Street Y returns to Sedona on Sunday, Dec. 9 when the Sedona International Film Festival hosts the live simulcast featuring Jon Meacham on Thomas Jefferson. The special simulcast event will take place at 5:30 p.m. at the festival's Mary D. Fisher Theatre, live as it is happening in New York.

Learn about the Founding Father who steered the states to nationhood, wrote the Declaration of Independence, and as a master politician President, doubled the size of America through the Louisiana Purchase - a man often admired but, before now, never truly understood in all his complexity.

Jon Meacham is an executive editor at Random House and the former editor of Newsweek. He is the author of several books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning American Lion and, most recently, Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.

Jon Meacham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning bestselling author and a commentator on history, politics and religion in America. He is an executive editor at Random House, where he also runs The Conversation Online, a site devoted to current affairs and relevant books. Meacham is an editor-at-large of WNET Public Media, New York's PBS station and the former co-anchor of Need to Know. He is also the former editor of Newsweek, where he started as writer in 1995 and was appointed editor in 2006. His new book, Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power, was must released.

His book, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, debuted at #2 on The New York Times bestseller list and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. He is also the author two other New York Times bestsellers - American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation and Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship.

He has written for The New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, Slate and The Los Angeles Times Book Review. In 2001, he edited Voices in Our Blood: America's Best on the Civil Rights Movement.

Live from NY's 92nd Street Y: Jon Meacham: On Jefferson will be shown live on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 5:30 p.m. The event is sponsored by Billy and Cheryl Geffon.
