SEFCU Arena, University at Albany

It is no exaggeration to call Dan Rather the voice of a generation, and in this special evening, he shares a wealth of anecdotes and insightful commentary on national and global news. 

Rather's recent New York Times bestseller, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism, offers a collection of original essays about the world we live in, what our core ideals have been and should be, and what it means to be an American. 

The Dan Rather event on Friday, Sept. 6, is a kickoff for the 2nd Annual Book Festival, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 14.
