I am a retired teacher who has been moved by the audio book which you wrote with Pete Hegseth. I have listened to it a minimum so six times. I also purchased the hardcover. I was feeling led to begin a CCS here in my community. After much prayer and continued thought I can be involved in in the set up and perhaps teach but believe I am better, at this time, at spreading the word. Therefore, I have spoken to the Chairman of our GOP organization in my county and he is willing for me to present to the group. I was overheard by another and he asked me to present at the Kiwanis Club here too. My questions are: provided I given credit and a bibliography am I violating any copyright laws or will I be able to get permission to base my presentation on you book?
We are grateful for your efforts to help spread the word about classical Christian education! To answer your question, to the best of our knowledge you should be fine to give your presentations if you give credit to “Battle for the American Mind” and authors Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin. If you were to use the text of the book word for word in writing or in a speech without providing credit, you would need to pursue more formal permission from Harper Collins. Best wishes for your presentations!
