Historian’s appearance moved outside

The appearance by historian David McCullough at the Truman Library on June 13 has been moved outdoors to meet demand.

McCullough had been scheduled to speak that day in the Truman Library auditorium. Now he will speak at 4:30 p.m. on the front steps of the library, 500 W. U.S. 24 in Independence.

Admission is free. Some reserved seating is available by calling 816-235-6222. Others are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.

In case of inclement weather, the event will move inside, and only those already holding auditorium tickets will be admitted.

McCullough also will speak in the Truman Library auditorium at 11 a.m. June 14, with Allen Weinstein, archivist of the United States. That event is sold out.
