Legendary journalist and author, Dan Rather, will be joining guests for a special presentation on July 25.
The Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries and the Columbus Metropolitan Club are hosting “An Evening with Dan Rather,” an event focusing not only on Rather’s contributions to the world of journalism but a discussion of his latest book, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism.
Rather began his journalism career in the 1950s, but he came into the national spotlight while working for CBS News covering Vietnam, the Nixon presidency, and the Watergate scandal.
For decades, Rather has been a welcome source of news in the homes of millions of Americans.
WBNS 10TV’s Scott Light, host of “Face the State” will be the event’s emcee and host for the audience Q&A. Following the presentation by Mr. Rather, books will be available for purchase and signing. Tickets are $45 for members of the Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries and Columbus Metropolitan Club and $50 for the general public.
The event will be held at Villa Milano, located at 1630 Schrock Road. An Evening with Dan Rather is sponsored by the Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries, the Columbus Metropolitan Club and Gramercy Books, with support provided by WBNS-10TV and the Columbus Dispatch.
