Darragh Center, Main Library
Kay C. Goss, an educator and long-time aide to President Clinton in the Governor's Office and at the US Federal Emergency Management Agency, will discuss her biography of Arkansas's longest-serving congressman, Mr. Chairman: The Life and Legacy of Wilbur D. Mills. The book covers the entirety of Mills's life (1909-1992), including his work on fiscal issues and his relationships with the eight presidents under whom he worked. Goss's work also delves into Mills's personal battle with alcoholism, his successful recovery, and his legacy of supporting substance abuse treatment.
Legacies & Lunch is free, open to the public, and supported in part by the Arkansas Humanities Council. The program is held from noon-1 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in the Main Library's Darragh Center. Attendees are invited to bring a sack lunch; drinks and dessert will be provided.
