On Tuesday, October 18th, Sherwin Markman will speak at the second of WC-ALL’s fall Learn at Lunch programs. As a Washington insider during the Lyndon B Johnson years, he brings a historical perspective to the topic: “Vicious Presidential Campaigns Past and Present” and poses the question “Is what we are witnessing now different from what we have witnessed before?”
The Washington College Academy of Lifelong Learning invites interested community members to join WC-ALL for lunch and this interesting presentation about the often raw history of electing presidents in the United States. The luncheon and lecture will begin at noon in the Hynson Lounge in Hodson Hall, located on the Washington College campus.
Mr. Markman, a retired D.C. trial lawyer, has published several books on the life of LBJ. He’s a popular instructor at WC-ALL and was featured at an earlier WC-ALL Learn at Lunch, speaking on “Seven Years at Sea” in which he chronicled his and his wife experiences crossing the North Atlantic by themselves and then spending years exploring the varied cultures of the Mediterranean.
