Michael Beschloss, 2008 Empire State Archives History Award honoree, in Albany, NY

Best selling author and presidential historian Michael Beschloss will return to Albany, Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30 p.m. at The Egg, Center for the Performing Arts at the Empire State Plaza to receive the 2008 Empire State Archives and History Award.

"The New York State Archives Partnership Trust gives this award each year to recognize a national figure for his/her contributions to history. Prior to receiving the award, Mr. Beschloss will engage in a probing hour-and-a-half discussion with nationally prominent author and Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer on Mr. Beschloss’s career in history and his thoughts on one of this nation’s most hotly contested presidential elections which will be decided less than two weeks after his Albany appearance."

You may have seen Mr. Beschloss' analysis on broadcast media; I recall his insightful dialogues with the late Peter Jennings of ABC News.

Tickets for the program at The Egg are $10 and can be purchased at The
Egg Box Office by calling (518) 473-1845. Those interested in attending a pre-event fundraising reception with Mr. Beschloss may call (518) 486-3949. Tickets for both the program and reception are limited.
