Event Description

From a colorful youth growing up in the governor’s mansion to a distinguished military career and eight terms as a United States Congressman, Bob Clement, son of former Tennessee Governor Frank Clement, has enjoyed a firsthand look at the politics of world events in the second half of the twentieth century. In his new book, Presidents, Kings, and Convicts: My Journey from the Tennessee Governor’s Residence to the Halls of Congress, Clement narrates the shaping of his life as a moderate Democrat growing up in the 1950s South and provides insight on the current crisis situations in the Middle East and around the world. Co-authors are Dava Guerin and Pete Weichlein. Books will be available for signing and purchase. The program is part of the Bud and Harriet Z. Albers Memorial Lecture Series and is free and open to the public. The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay Street, Knoxville. For more information on the lecture, exhibitions, or museum hours, call 865-215-8824 or visit the website at www.EastTNHistory.org.
