Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear one of America’s most revered spokesmen talk about our country as it is and as it was. This wonderful collection of 168 essays covers a broad range: from politics and presidents to the things that touch us, make us laugh, or reveal the small shifts in our culture that sometimes just creep up on us. Smart, humorous, commonsensical – sometimes bitingly critical and plainspoken, other times suffused with wonder and delight – these essays speak to us all.
“My objective,” says Schieffer, “has never been to convert someone to my way of thinking, but merely to provoke thought, to explain a complicated subject, or to call attention to a human foible. The greatest compliment to me is not when viewers write to say they agree with my conclusions, but when they say, “I really never thought of it that way before.”Co-sponsored with The Darien Community Association and The Darien High School Parent's Association, the proceeds from this event will benfit the DCA's Scholarship Fund. Tickets are available at Barrett Bookstore and the DCA. Suggested price $20.00 (students free). (booksense)
