Helen Thomas, White House Correspondent

Helen Thomas, the veteran White House reporter, appeared at the Michigan Theatre located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, on Tuesday, November 24th and I had an opportunity to attend the lecture & book signing. The event was co-sponsored by the Ann Arbor District Library and Michigan Radio. It was wonderful. The 89-year-old delivered. She's just as passionate today about our country and politics as she was when she held her first job as a neophyte reporter in the early 1940s. You can read a great event review about Helen Thomas here: Ann

She has covered more presidents as a member of the White House Press Corps than any journalist working today. Her new book is "Listen Up Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know and Do."
