Guest Speaker Series: Bill Kauffman “The Congressional Journal of Barber Conable”
Wednesday, July 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$3
oin us Wednesday, July 28th at 7 pm as we welcome local author Bill Kauffman as he debuts his latest work The Congressional Journal of Barber Conable, 1968-1984.” Kauffman is the editor of the work which is a compilation of entries from Congressman Barber Conable about the machinations of Congress and the American government at the highest level.
“The journal is an honest, searching, sometimes humorous, occasionally cutting, and always fascinating look inside Congress. Conable, a Republican member of the House from upstate New York, wrote perceptively about Presidents Nixon, Ford, H. W. Bush, and the leading congressional figures of the day. For seventeen years he wrote about the big events as well as daily political life in an era that included Vietnam, Watergate, political realignment, and major changes in entitlements and taxes, where he played a key role.”
Admission is $3 per person or $2 for museum members. The presentation will also be available via Zoom at the link below. Copies of the book will also be available for sale.
