Michael Beschloss on Washington DC

Here's your chance to see someone in person who's usually just a talking head on a television screen.

Michael Beschloss, touted by Newsweek as "the nation's leading presidential historian", will talk about Washington, D.C., during the seventh annual Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series event to be held at 6 p.m. 13 September in the Columbia Club, Indianapolis.

Tickets are available (starting at $125) from the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, which benefits from the event.

If you're really a big fan, for $175 you'll get admission not only to the dinner and presentation, but a private reception with Mr. Beschloss in the Harrison Home.

As part of the program, the Presidential Site will present the 2012 Advancing American Democracy Award to The Honorable Sarah Evans Barker. This award recognizes an individual who advances the values of American democracy by encouraging and enabling ethical citizen participation in government.

The Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series is made possible through a restricted fund provided by the family of the late Mary Tucker Jasper to support an annual series of lectures. Mary Tucker Jasper was a 75-year member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter.

Here's Beschloss in action:
