WESTPORT, Conn. -- Political junkies will want to mark their calendars for Monday, Sept. 26 and head for the Westport Library to attend a special viewing and discussion of the first presidential debate between Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Party nominee Donald Trump.
The event, which runs from 8 to 11 p.m. in the Library’s McManus Room and is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Westport, will be hosted by former news correspondent and author Eric Burns. Burns will introduce the debate and moderate a community discussion afterwards. Light refreshments will be available at the program, which is free and open to the public.
Burns is a former correspondent for NBC News and the Today Show. For 10 years he was the host of the top-rated Fox News Watch, and he has won an Emmy for media criticism. He is the author of "The Golden Lad: The Haunting Story of Quentin and Theodore Roosevelt," "1920: The Year that Made the Decade Roar," "Infamous Scribblers," "The Spirits of America," and "The Smoke of the Gods." The latter two were named “Best of the Best” by the American Library Association.
