Adam ClymerThe Baker Center for Public Policy hosts award-winning journalist and author Adam Clymer for a luncheon and book discussion at the UT Visitor’s Center at 11:30 a.m. today.

Clymer will be discussing his latest book, Drawing the Line at the Big Ditch: The Panama Canal Treaties and the Rise of the Right, which is the result of extensive research of Senator Baker’s papers from the Baker Center’s Modern Political Archive.

Clymer has kept Americans informed about their government for more than four decades, including more than 25 years as Chief Washington Correspondent for The New York Times covering Congress, the White House and presidential campaigns. In 2004 he was named a visiting scholar at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, where he served as Political Director for the National Annenberg Election Survey. His previous books include Reagan: The Man, the President and Edward M. Kennedy: A Biography.
