April 18, 2017 – As the Trump presidency approaches its 100th day, NPR News is launching a new round of the live events series A Nation Engaged, to help foster a national conversation on the topic of Power & the Presidency, answering the question: "How powerful should any American president be?"

During the week leading up to the 100th day (April 29), four NPR Member stations will pose this question to live audiences with panel discussions and town-hall style events in four presidential libraries around the country: WABE and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum, KCUR and the Harry S Truman Library and Museum, Iowa Public Radio and the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library, and KCLU and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute hosting these events.

Each event will be co-hosted by a reporter from NPR's national desk: Debbie Elliott in Georgia, Wade Goodwyn in California, Sarah McCammon in Iowa, and John Burnett in Missouri. Then, on Thursday, April 27, On Point will take that conversation national with a one-hour Special program focused on key themes that emerge in those events. Host Tom Ashbrook of WBUR will play excerpts from the local conversations and pose these issues to the national radio audience.
