James Reston, Jr | “The Impeachment Diary: Eyewitness to the Removal of a President”
December 8, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm| Free
James Reston, Jr., took leave from teaching during the summer of 1973 to witness the Senate Watergate Committee hearings as he worked with his coauthor on what became the first full-length book to advocate for Richard Nixon’s impeachment.
“The Impeachment Diary” is his contemporaneous account of those heady, uncertain times: when a president, having been investigated by a special counsel and Congress, was called to account for acts contrary to his oath and office, and fundamental questions about the Constitution were engaged. The diary offers lessons—both insights and cautions—for our own time.
Following the presentation, the author will sign copies of their book which will be available for sale by Browseabout Books.
Registration is requested. Sign up online through the library website, by calling the library at 302-645-2733, or stop by the Circulation Desk. Walk-ins are welcome.
