When: Wed., June 20, 6:30 p.m. 2012
Dan Rather has been on the beat for nearly 60 years. He was first to report the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He reported from the front lines of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. And he seemed to take special pleasure in exposing the Bush empire. Today, the award-winning journalist pays a visit to Kansas City's Central Library (14 West 10th Street, 816-701-3400), where he gives a free 6:30 p.m. lecture promoting his new memoir, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News, and answers some hard questions from Crosby Kemper III. A reception begins at 6. RSVP at kclibrary.org.
Price: free (reservations requested)
