Governor Terry McAuliffe will discuss his recent book, Beyond Charlottesville.

Joining Governor McAuliffe on stage will be journalist Sam Fulwood III, senior fellow for Politics and Elections at American Progress, former members of Congress Gary FranksAlbert Wynn, and others. The discussion will focus on what history teaches us about coming together as a nation. A book signing will follow the program.

Presented in partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress.
